The 4 and 5 hour trips visit the same rich areas and also go further offshore in search of whales. When the tides are strong we call the trips 'whirlpool specials'.
    'WHALES, DOLPHINS, SEALS, PUFFINS AND EAGLES.
    We may see porpoises, minke whales, basking sharks, dolphins, seals, puffins, otters, deer, golden and white tailed sea eagles. The abundance of fish found in the Firth of Lorn Special Area of Conservation provides rich feeding which also attracts seabirds, such as puffins and gannets, as well as many other 'rarities', including skuas, petrels, and occasionally divers. We often encounter feeding frenzies, where hundreds of seabirds plunge into the sea, as fish are driven to the surface by auks, whales, dolphins and porpoise feeding below. Large herds of red deer inhabit the islands, having once swum here from the mainland. There is also a small herd of fallow deer, and we often see both these species and also feral goats, feeding close to the shore. Eagles and falcons soar overhead. This area enjoys the highest population density of golden eagles anywhere in Europe, and is also home to the magnificent white-tailed sea eagle, which lives and hunts along the coasts of these beautiful islands. Along the shore we see common and grey seals, basking on their favorite haul-outs, and otters. Please visit www.sealife-adventures.com for more information.
