WHALE AND PUFFIN DAY TRIP via FINGAL'S CAVE : Depart 09.30hrs from Ardfern subject to weather and demand. Return approximately 19.30hrs to include around 2 hours ashore with the puffins.

Sail out through Corryvreckan then pass by the Torran Rocks and in to the Sound of Iona after a brief stop at David Balfour's Bay. Then on to Staffa to view Fingal's Cave from the sea before continuing to Lunga in the Treshnish Isles to mingle with the puffins and other nesting birds.

Landing is by rubber dinghy and requires good agility to walk over boulders to get ashore. Good walking boots and sensible clothing essential. You may get your feet wet landing .Landing cannot be guaranteed as conditions can change making it difficult to get ashore.

Bring a packed lunch with extra as if we are seeing whales we will stay out a bit longer

This trip only runs when the puffins are ashore May to Mid August
