West Coast Cruising

We've seen three very different passenger ships in the Sound in the last week.  First there was the Discovery, a 700-passenger cruise ship which is part of the Cruise & Maritime Voyages' fleet.  She passed us on 8th May having spent the day in Tobermory.  Book a trip on her here.

Island Sky, which came past on Tuesday, is a much smaller ship, with 114 passengers looked after by 75 crew.  She's part of Noble Caledonia's fleet.  A trip on her is a little more expensive than on Discovery, so you can probably afford it - the website's here.

You won't be able to afford a trip on this one.  The super-yacht Adix sailed past us a few minutes ago, and a very fine sight she was.  She's 65metres long, and has 14 crew to look after 10 passengers.  She was built in Spain and launched in 1984.  One thing is good about her - judging by the size of it, she sails proudly under a UK flag.

    Tremendous photo of Adix...such a special moment !! Thank you for sharing it. What a magnificent sight she makes thundering past across smooth seas under all plain sail.
