Get To Know Argyll Cruising
Argyll Cruising is a family business owned and operated by Skipper Ted Creek. Originally founded by former Skipper and owner Iain Duncan in 2014, it has successfully operated eight cruising seasons out of Holy Loch and Oban on a converted mini-cruise vessel, Splendour.
Having watched Splendour from the windows of the family homes in Tighnabruaich and Dunoon since her first season, Ted has loved having the opportunity to integrate into the business over the last couple of years, finally taking over at the start of 2022. He is looking forward to continuing to develop small-boat cruising into a stronger sector in Argyll, offering unique Scottish Cruises, visiting the inlets and islands of Argyll, Arran and the Outer Hebrides.
Ted, although brought up in Surrey, spent all of his holidays in Scotland, mainly on the west coast, before undertaking a degree in Marine Biology and Oceanography and then beginning his career as a tour guide and skipper. He is an expert on the local area, particularly the wildlife, and enjoys nothing more than introducing them to our guests.
What a privilege to be on your inaugural voyage. What a beautiful part of the world, such comfortable and interesting surroundings, unbeatable food and great company. Thank you!
A superb introduction to Scottish cruising. Had a wonderful time with great hospitality. Our birthdays were made very special.

The perfect way to end the first leg of our honeymoon! We loved it! The short cruise around these beautiful islands has been a delight – as has the company. Thank you to crew and guests – you’ve helped make the start of our married lives together so memorable! We hope to be back!!
