St Abbs Charters

Based in the picturesque village of St Abbs, We run a boat charter company that provides diving and angling trips, tour boat/ wildlife trips and private charters for companies and film/ TV .


St Abbs is a voluntary marine reserve and as such has a very varied and interesting selection of wildlife.

With most of the dive sites in the range of 12-22m it means that St Abbs is ideal for all ability levels of divers and is one of the most popular dive destinations in the UK.

We run a two dive day with an onshore break in between dives.


St Abbs marine reserve is a voluntary protected zone for wildlife. Within the reserve it is only allowed to take animals by sustainable means (hook and line or lobster pots).

This means that the local fish population thrives within the reserve and Angling trips normally result in some great hauls and catches

Charters by the day or the hour


With a great history hewn out of a molten past, St Abbs enjoys beutiful scenery and spectacular views.

A lot of these amazing locations can only be viewed from the sea, So we run regular trips to take our guests out and around the marine reserve to see the breath taking sights and wiildlife. We regularily see dolphins, seals and the local populations of Gullimots, Gannets and Puffins

“We’ve been out on the boat with Barry and had a fantastic time here in St Abbs. He took us on a tour along the stunning coastline and told us all about the area and history – he’s an excellent guide. As a bonus we saw seals and dolphins! A truly great experience it was.” Nienke
