If visiting the beautiful island of Barra why not take a sea angling trip, a wildlife spotting trip, or a trip to one of the deserted neighbouring islands. You could even specify your own type of boat trip for private charter. Barra fishing charters can do all of these for you.
From the beginning of May to the end of September, Barra Fishing Charters caters for sea anglers wishing to experience the rich fishing waters of the Minch, family trips experiencing the porpoise, seals, otters and numerous seabirds round Barra’s coast, and groups wishing to visit some of the uninhabited islands off Barra. 
Tourists can enjoy the rugged beauty of the Western Isles and spend time appreciating the unique environment and wildlife. 
There are a wide variety of species available in the unpolluted waters of the Minch. Sea angling is an activity that can be enjoyed equally by experienced anglers and tourists wishing to try a new activity.

We specialize in fishing trips for a number of species such as mackerel, pollack, coley, saithe and many other types, all dependent of the time of year. Just ask and we will let you know what you are likely to catch. Rods and bait will be provided free of charge.


Wild-life spotting trips can also be arranged to see the various species in the area, such as seal colonies, shags, cormorants, gannets, basking sharks, dolphins, to name but a few.

 


Trips to neighbouring islands are also a very popular choice when visiting Barra, with the most common island being Mingulay with it's magnificant sea-cliffs and bird colonies, on a calm day it is possible to sail through the natural arch on the west side of Mingulay, we have found that this is one of the biggest highlights for our passengers. Other favourite islands are Barra Head (the most southerly point of the Outer Hebrides) and Pabbay. Specific trips to other islands or a series of islands can be done on arrangement.

 


Private charters can also be arranged with Barra Fishing Charters. This includes sea-angling for specific arrangements, trips to neighbouring islands or a mixture of all that we offer.

Barra fishing charters also have self-catering accommodation available. Other types of accommodation can also be booked by us, such as hotels, guest houses and bed and breakfasts. Just ask when inquiring about a charter.
