Based at Elgol jetty, AquaXplore is part of the same excellent organisation as the Bella Jane. The differences are marked though! Trips with AquaXplore are either on one of a pair of high-powered Humber RIBs or on a more conventional high speed vessel with more comfortable facilities. Each of the RIBs has 12 seats (you sit astride - a bit like a motorbike) and goes like the wind - about 30 knots actually. The other boat offers similar capacity and performance, but with bench seating, a heated wheelhouse, weather protection and wheelchair access. The guides/captains are great. They are skilled, safe, knowledgeable, personable, interesting and fun.


You can take short sightseeing and wildlife trips, or longer ones that visit other islands, giving you time ashore to explore Rum, Eigg or Canna.  There is a real chance of seeing red deer, puffins, seals, whales, dolphins, porpoises, basking sharks, sea eagles, puffins and a host of other sea birds on the trip.

I would say that if you want some organised fun when you are on Skye, this is the number one choice. It is an exhilarating experience you'll remember for a long time.
