Introducing the ‘Sea Sprinter’

High speed, smooth sea keeping and great shelter onboard.

2021 Island Dive Safaris take place from the Sea Sprinter: a twin engined ‘Lochan 38’ dive charter boat.

Powered by twin 300HP Caterpillar engines, the Sea Sprinter can really move! Combined with an excellent hull shape for cutting through any choppy water, the comfort while underway is unrivalled.  A large cabin space with comfortable seating leads out to a sheltered deck. This boat is ideal for our two day Island Dive Safaris.

Group bookings only.
