We have so many wildlife adventure options that you may be wondering where to start. Firstly, unless you are seeking to book a private charter, our tours have set dates, based around the peak basking shark season. You can find an overview of which tours run when here.
For those whose main goal is to see basking sharks, we highly recommend our Coll based basking shark tours. You have the choice between 7, 4 and 3 days which are again at set dates through the season. Our week tours offer the highest chances of sightings as 7 days is spent on the water searching, our July weeks give you chance to combine a visit to the Treshnish Isles to visit the puffin colony before they depart the land (usually first week of August). Our tours based out of Coll are closer to the aggregation site, and time can be maximised searching for pelagic wildlife. It also gives us more opportunity to be reactive to changing weather. Our 3 and 4 day tours offer the same itinerary, with an extra day searching for sharks on the 4 day tour.
If you would like to see basking sharks, but equally want to see lots of other wildlife and local highlights of the Hebrides, our Oban Spring or Autumn Island Adventures are a great choice. These tours are based in Oban, there is plenty going on in the town to fill your evenings. This tour is great for wild swimmers, snorkelers and watchers alike. The spring tour is a day longer, as this is in the seabird breeding season. Both seasons are a beautiful time to visit the islands, each offering a completely different colour backdrop.
There is no need to swim or snorkel on any of out tours, our Whale and Dolphin and Puffin & Seabird tours are great for those who don’t want to get wet, but want to get close to wildlife. Our Seal & Hebrides day trip is a fab day out for the whole family.
Still not sure which tour is for you, then get in touch and our friendly team will help you.
