Just below the surface of the sea lies the remarkable world of the ocean. The waters of the Outer Hebrides are among the most unpolluted in the world and as a result, are occupied by wonderful marine life and mammals. Sailing the passages of water between the islands, it’s often possible to spot basking sharks, minke whales, orca (killer whales), porpoises and friendly, inquisitive dolphins. 

Resting slightly closer to the surface of the water are some more intriguing creatures. The rare sunfish has been spotted from the deck of the Enchanted Isle. Its name refers to the animal's habit of “sunbathing” at the surface of the water. 

Grey seals, common seals and otters can be found in and around the water's edge, and can often be spotted when approaching or returning from St Kilda.
