My name is Jamie Elder, the owner/skipper of a charter boat named “Striker” I am a Scallop diver and spent my time diving around the West coast of Scotland for many years. West Highland Marine is an established company, my father and I have a combined experience of 50 years in these waters, recreationally and working commercially. I enjoy passing on my knowledge and enthusiasm and like to answer any questions you may have about marine life. On the boat trips I can share my underwater experiences with visitors by lifting fishing creels to look at creatures from below the waves - velvet, green, edible brown crabs, lobsters, octopus, sea stars and a variety of fish as well. We also regularly see Northern European Otters, Seals, Golden Eagles, White Tailed Sea Eagles and many sea birds.
Tours are weather dependant. For bookings and further information visit the Inverewe Garden Visitor Centre or call the numbers below.
