Welcome to Orkney Boat Charter.


Based in Orkney, a group of islands off the north coast of Scotland situated between the Atlantic Ocean, the North Sea and the Pentland Firth, there is no shortage of sea life to spot here. It's estimated that 15% of the world’s seal population live on these shores. Rich in dolphins and porpoise sightings with a few whales too. Keep your eyes peeled for the not so common orca breaching the surface as well.

The Scapa Protector is a Orkney Day Angler 21. She is coded for 3 passengers and fully insured. This makes it a real personal experience with the qualified skipper.

Powered by a powerful Yamaha F70 engine and a smaller Yamaha back up she's a great all round agile vessel.
