Sailing Holidays

Join us for an unforgettable quality sailing holiday on board our Tall Ship, Bessie Ellen where our sailing holidays and cruises are designed by you and for you. We understand what you are looking for and although you may have never been on a sailing ship before or you have perhaps sailed all your life, we guarantee that  you will leave with unforgettable memories. A voyage on Bessie Ellen also promises the learning of new skills, as we take you on adventures exploring some of the most remote coastlines and islands around Europe, and beyond.

Cruise around the remote Scottish Isles, soak up the sun in the Canaries and admire the breathtaking Cornish coast during one of our day sails or Tall Ship Taster weekends. Connoisseurs will delight in our Sail, Music, Celidhs and Malts tours whilst those with a passion for nature will delight in our Whales and Basking Shark watching voyage.
