Shona Boat
Ranked #5 of 13 things to do in Port Erin
Attraction details
Reviewed 28 June 2018

Shona boat leaves from Port Erin & has an excellent facebook page with info of all the sailings plus mobile numbers and contacting them was a breeze . I recommend checking and reserving . 12 is max number of passengers . We had flat calm seas and sailed for a landing at South Harbour for a 2 1/2 hr walk on The Calf . The guy showed us a map and had info about the wild life . There is no mobile signal on the calf . We saw Risso Dolphins , Seals , Rabbits , Razor Bills , Shearwaters , Black Gulls , Shags, Oyster Catchers , Guillemots to name a few . Price £25 .

A wonderful way to spend a summer's evening landing on the Calf of Man. Jason and his helmsman were a delight and very informative about wildlife and history. We would definitely go again.

Had a lovely trip around the Calf of Man aboard The Shona while we were over for the Manx GP. Highly recommended and very informative talk from Jason about the Island and wildlife. The Drinking Dragon on the far side of The Calf is amazing but only visible from a boat.

Very enjoyable trip around the Calf of Man. Magnificent scenery and knowledgeable chat from Jason. Good sightings of seals and various birds, highly recommended for all ages at a very reasonable price.

I recently enjoyed a couple of exciting hours onboard Shona, on a trip around the Calf of Man what offered some dramatic landscapes, wildlife encounters and great information about everything in and around the water.

Chris and Jason running these boat trips are professional, friendly and very knowledgeable about everything you see, from the birds to seals and lighthouses you come across.

Don't take this trip only with the aim of spotting basking sharks (which is possible), as this is wild nature and nothing is certain (and dependent on seasons and weather), but take it to experience this beautiful coastline from the water and with the chance to see some exciting wildlife. On the trip i took we saw plenty of seals and different birds, and all in all it was a very memorable experience. Don't hesitate to go!
