Visiting Rockall is difficult, completely weather dependant, and not cheap. Landings are rare, require specialist equipement and experience, good weather and a lot of luck. The remoteness of the islet is the primary reason for the infrequency of landings and its mystique; the weather is the deciding factor in departures, successful journies, and landings. The boat charter companies below operate out of the Western Isles and have high success rates in both visits to, and landings on Rockall.
Kraken Travel had planned a voyage to Rockall with the potential opportunity to land, weather dependent in May 2020. This was postponed and eventually cancelled due to Covid restrictions. For more information on any future trips please head to their website.
