The Rockall Club

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.

Kilda Cruises - Angus Campbell's motor catarmaran Orca 3 has had an excellent record in going to and landing on Rockall. Orca 3 was launched in April 2012 and was instrumental in Nick Hancock's landing during the Jubilee celebrations and his stay in 2014. Angus also runs commercial charters of Orca III as Atlantic Marine Services.

Rockall Guide - Nick Hancock is the current Rockall occupation record holder, having lived alone on Rockall for 45 days in 2014.

Nick, who is a qualified Mountain Leader, is available to hire as a guide for any prospective Rockall landings. If intesterested in Nick's services, it is advised that you contact him as early as possible in your planning, so that he can provide input and advice from an early stage.
