2 HOUR WHIRLPOOL EXPERIENCE To give the best chance of seeing whirlpools this trip only runs when the tide is at its strongest which is every two weeks around a new and full moon.

See the maelstrom in action, learn why it happens, hear tales of Prince Breckan and the Calliach. Please note that the strength of the tide, wind strength and direction, atmospheric pressure, and whether it is a flood or ebb tide will all affect what you will see in the Gulf. Every visit is different .A spring flood tide tends to produce standing waves, spring ebb tide a series of upthrusts and whirlpools with sometimes one large whirlpool. Although this trip is principally about the Whirlpool we will stop to look at any interesting wildlife we see along the way.
