The Northern Light Cruising Company

All aboard the Hjalmar Bjorge! Our Oban-based boat carries up to 10 guests and cruises anywhere from 6 to 12 nights all around the Hebrides.


From the Inner and Outer Hebrides to St Kilda, North Rona, Sula Sgeir and the Northern Isles of Orkney and Shetland, The Northern Light Cruising Company offers you a wide choice of amazing adventure cruises all around the Highlands and Islands of this beautiful part of Scotland.

Oban is an easy departure point to get to from Glasgow, Edinburgh and around the UK, and is your gateway to a truly memorable Scottish adventure, visiting many remote and secluded islands and other places where you will get the chance to step ashore and explore.

The spectacular Scottish wildlife is all around with our cruising area one of the very best in Europe for spotting cetaceans like minke, humpback and fin whales, orca, several species of dolphins including Risso's and common, not to mention the lovely little harbour porpoise too. Then there are the spectacular seabird colonies where thousands of puffins, gannets, guillemots and razorbills for example go to breed and we will take you there to experience the sights and sounds of these wildlife extravaganzas.
