From May to September we operate from Oban and sail to the islands off the west coast of Scotland. We provide skippered yacht charters and adventure sailing holidays for all levels. Oban marina is a full facility marina which provides the optimum base for sailing in Europes finest area of mountains and wilderness. At the Waypoint Bar & Grill you can enjoy some of the freshest and finest local seafood you can get anywhere.
Sailing out of Oban opens the gateway to many beautiful places around Scotland’s West Highland shores with pilotages between anchorages varying from easy to very difficult, and of course weather always plays a part.
These are just a few possibilities which we hope you will find useful. The length of the cruises or yacht charters are arranged to suit our clients’ requirements. The places we visit are determined by weather conditions, your sailing abilities, and ambitions to visit places you have never seen before.
If required tuition is freely available for beginners or experts who are encouraged to develop their skills so that they may enjoy their time afloat safely aboard the yacht.
The price includes tuition, the use of all safety equipment, meals and snacks. If you have a favourite nibble or tipple you are welcome to bring it along. You will have to bring waterproofs (some help can be given with those), warm clothes, a hat, sleeping bag, soft soled non-slip shoes and wellington boots.

The Skippers also prepare the meals but needs help with the washing up.
