The islands around North Uist provide a myriad of environments for wildlife and one of the best ways to catch a glimpse of this is by boat. Whilst visiting the host of small offshore islands around north Uist you might catch a glimpse of anything from seals, otters or dolphins to Golden and Sea Eagles. Many local companies – such as Lady Anne Boat Trips and Uist Sea Tours – are available and venture out from the many harbours around the Uists. Some offer sightseeing or wildlife whilst others offer a more hands on trip with sea fishing options.
There are also specialised departures for day trips to the distant and famous islands of St Kilda, depending on the weather.
