A 4-night fundraising whale and dolphin watching cruise in aid of the Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust. It's a great time of year for all the local and visiting species in the height of summer. Scotland at its best!

DATES: Mon 8th August to Fri 12th August 2022

A UK whale, dolphin and 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 donation of 15% of the proceeds of this fundraising 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 too.
