Sailing in Scotland, whisky tasting at the source

Board tall ship Thalassa and visit Scotland’s famous malt whisky distilleries while sailing through some of the most beautiful coastal sceneries in the world. Experience charming old fishing villages, hauntingly beautiful landscapes and visit places almost impossible to reach by anything but by boat.

Scotland is a whisky lover’s paradise and there is no finer way to explore the country’s whisky-producing islands than on board of Thalassa. Visit the world-famous Islay Festival of Music and Malt, join our whisky ambassador for a tour to the best fine malt coastal distilleries and explore the magical islands by foot or by bike. In the evenings, relax and enjoy the company of fellow whisky enthusiasts as you savour your favourite whisky from our well-stocked whisky bar on board. All in all, our Whisky Sailing Cruises offer a fantastic way to experience Scotland in all its wild and natural glory
