With this amazing spell of weather and regular evening sailings the cruise boat has been making its journey up Loch Eil on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sunday evenings. Boarding for the evening cruise starts at 7.15pm departing from the Town Pier at 7.30pm. Our regular evening Skipper Jamie Ball provides an entertaining commentary with information and facts about Ben Nevis, Fort William and the beautiful area we live in. As the sun sets Jamie keeps his binoculars on hand ready for identifying the abundant wildlife. En route through the narrows Souters Lass passes a heron’s nest. Wildlife appear from all angles including porpoise, black throated divers, buzzard, cormorants, moorhen, oystercatcher, whooper swans, and more. Recently there has even been an osprey lurking in the trees. The journey continues into Loch Eil. Here Ben Nevis can be seen in all its splendour with amazing lighting from the sun as it sets in the west. Souters Lass then turns and heads for home before darkness falls.
Come and join us on any of our sailings; call the crew on 01397 700714.
