Sea of the Hebrides

Basking Shark Tour

We are the No1 worldwide operator to see basking sharks in the biggest basking shark hotspot. We can see sharks from April to October but have a short consistent time from July-Sept in the Hebrides. Our tours run from one day to week long adventures.

Our geographical area of operation is a basking shark ‘hotspot’, widely known as one of the best areas in the whole world for basking shark sightings. We offer a wide range of basking shark swimming and wildlife excursions in the Inner Hebrides. Our mission is to provide you with great interactions with basking sharks and the abundant wildlife of the area. We create opportunities for you to experience in-water swimming with basking sharks, plus wildlife and adventure excursions. From snorkelling with sharks, to wild swimming in Fingals Cave, our multi day tours show you the best of what the Hebrides have to offer.

Our tours are organised from April to October to coincide with the basking sharks' migration to the area, where they feed on the abundant plankton. Multi day tours also include snorkelling with seals and the chance to experience some amazing wild swimming spots.

A wide variety of people seek out our expertise on our shark swims. Whether you’re a novice or have experience with the sea, we’ll make sure you have the very best of the opportunities available. We welcome:

  • Snorkelling beginners
  • Underwater photographers and videographers wanting to capture amazing footage of these gentle giants
  • Recreational divers and snorkellers 
  • Non-divers wishing to achieve unforgettable experiences

For those not so keen on a close encounter or getting wet, you are welcome to book as a shark watcher on board the boat where you will still get an amazing view of these gentle giants.

Advanced booking is essential!
