We specialise in adventure wildlife tourism, offering transformation experiences swimming with basking sharks around the Inner Hebrides. The sharks are seasonal visitors to our coastlines so we also run many other wildlife & watersports tours, charters and overseas expeditions. Along with an active science programme on the sharks.
