4 HOUR WHALE AND WILDLIFE TRIP : These trip only run when whales are likely to be in the area May to September and are run when tidal conditions are right to give the best chance of a sighting.

We constantly monitor cetacean and basking shark movements and only run these trips when there is a chance of sightings. The first minke whale sightings of 2018 were reported mid April, there has also been a report of a basking shark.

All cetacean and basking shark sightings are reported to the relevant organisations so we can contribute to our understanding of these magnificent creatures in our waters. Please note that there cannot be any guarantee of any sighting of any wild animal but the area we operate in is a wildlife feeding hot spot so chances are good to see a variety of species on this trip.

This trip will include the Gulf of Corryvreckan, The Grey Dogs, and the Great Race and will visit a seal colony and two sea eagle nests
