Tour Details

Summer is a great time for whale and dolphin watching in the waters of the Minch around the Outer Hebrides. Migrating cetaceans come and swell the numbers of resident whales and dolphins meaning you have more chances of seeing more of them. We will sail around some hotspots that we know of in our search to show you these wonderful creatures, covering some recently ratified Marine Protection Areas including one right on our doorstep desgined for protecting the local Risso's dolphin population.

As always we will be gathering all our sightings observation data that you are very welcome to take part in, as well as trying to capture photo IDs of individual animals to help reseaarchers try to identify them so they can be tracked by past and future sightings also.

We will be donating 15% of the proceeds of this cruise to our partners at the Sea Watch Foundation to help with their important ongoing research work. We are proud to be a member of their Recommended Boat Operators scheme and hope you will join us on board for this cruise during their annual National Whale and Dolphin Watch week.
