Boat Trips on the Isle of Mull
There are lots of fantastic ways to get out and about in boats from Mull. Trips to offshore islands, whale watching trips and cruises are all available.
Lots of people staying on Mull will do a boat trip during their stay and there is a lot to choose from. Visit Staffa and have a day out on Iona, head out to the Treshnish Islands and see the puffins, go on a whale watching trip or get the passenger service to the Ardnamurchan peninsula from Tobermory. Here are some ideas to help you plan ahead.
Trips to Iona and Staffa
Visit Staffa, Fingal's Cave and Iona in one day. It is a 45 minute sea journey to Staffa and Fingal's Cave which is always atmospheric with basaltic columns formed 59 million years ago. Puffins can be seen ashore in season and often guillemots, fulmars, great skuas, eider ducks, gannets, kittewakes, black-backed gulls, great northern divers and razorbills on the water.
