Self drive boat hire tuition

This is individual and before you venture out. We carefully go through all aspects of the boat allowing time for any queries you may have.

We then cover boat handling skills and the "rules of the road" skills you will need to be out on the loch safely and competently.

Individual seafaring knowledge varies from person to person from complete novices to guests who know our boats and the loch almost as well as we do. Once we have covered the basics we are happy to take as long as is needed so that you feel happy, competent, comfortable and safe using the boat.

We are always on hand to answer any questions you may have.


Come and go as you please

Our private pontoon makes it so easy to come and go. Spend a perfect morning out on the loch diving, fishing, wildlife watching, photographing the amazing scenery and wildlife then pop back for coffee or lunch before having an afternoon out and about once more.

Fantastic Scenery
We stayed for a week 3rd to 10th August 2013 at Laga Bay. Apart from staying at a fabulous cottage overlooking Loch Sunart, we had a fantastic boat trip with Tom (and Dexter his black lab) from Ardnamurchan Charters. Starting at Laga Bay we went out to Cairns of Coll to see harbour porpoises, many seals, followed by 8 basking sharks, 2 Minke Whales and various birds, on the way to Muck. The weather was great and a lunch in the Cairns of Coll, with its turquoise blue clear waters and inquisitive seals was one of the highlights. Andy (Tom's dad) also took us on an interesting trip up and down the Loch including Carna. Stunning part of world and great boat trips to be had. Tony, August 2013

Wonderful day with self drive boat
We set off into Loch Sunart after very clear and helpful intructions on how to drive the boat and safety intructions to look at the wild life and fish. The 3 of us had an amazing day, saw lots of birds and caught a mackeral. The most amazing thing, which is often the case in Scotland was the light. We had 4 seasons weather, rainbows, mist and sun all giving extraordinary light and views. The trip was advertised as disabled access but so many aren't even if advertised as such, getting on with the tide in was fine then getting off at low tide day could have been tricky but the day was truely complete when they pulled the boat in by tractor and i walked off on dry land! Most wonderful people and most wonderful trip. Chris F. June 2014

Wonderful stay
We sincerely thank Andy and Alliosn for a wonderful stay and genuinely nice host. We also enjoyed their lovely boat tour of the Loch, amazing, no other words. Must see Ardnamurchan point, furthest most land to the westof Scotland. Magnificent views, crashing waves and very peaceful mountains. We plan to come again. The Laga Lodge was beautiful, warm and inviting. Everything we needed. Love S. & S. 09/20/2017 Stephen and Shanley, Melrose MA, USA
