Our annual fundraising cruise for the Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust - 4-nights sailing around the cetacean rich waters of the Minch. What could be better for a dedicated whale and dolphin lover?
Dates: 7th to 11th August 2023
A UK wildlife watchers dream - during this 4-night cruise in the Hebrides you will be helping gather cetacean sightings data and ID photographs for our friends at the Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust (HWDT) who will be receiving a fixed donation from this trip. White-tailed eagles, seals, gannets and other sea birds will also feature of course and lots more too as we work along the Minch and its coastlines. It's a great time of year to be out on the water and it is possible that we might spot a basking shark or two as well maybe if we are lucky. You just never know what might turn up with minke whales, common dolphins, Risso's dolphins, white-beaked dolphins and harbour porpoise all likely. However fin whales, humpbacks and orca all pass through this area.
Whale & wildlife watching + activity cruises around Scotland's Hebridean islands and the Highlands' west coast, with itineraries including Skye and St Kilda! Cruises range from two to six nights and are all-inclusive, with shore excursions. Certain cruises offer activities like sea kayaking, hiking, snorkelling and photography led by an expert. Our guides will point out the whales, dolphins, eagles, puffins and other sealife that call this area home while keeping a safe and respectful distance. Two raised observation decks give you great views! Departures from Mallaig, Stornoway and Ullapool.
