This popular 3 hour trip allows passengers the opportunity to get up close to the world's 3rd largest whirlpool from the safety of an open RIB.

We try to ensure departure timings are relevant to witnessing the best effect linked to the current tide table. However, there may be times when you will not see the whirlpool at its best as it only happens about 50 times per season. You will however be able to see the difference in water height between the Atlantic and the narrowing channel running to the East of Jura as we will visit another smaller channel to the North of Scarba called the Grey Dogs if the Corryvreckan has no visible tidal movement.

On this tour you will also see an active nesting site for White Tailed Sea Eagles and the legendary Barnhill where George Orwell wrote his best seller 1984 as well as all villages on route from the departure point of Craighouse.
