2019 Basking Shark Weeks
- Duration: 7 Days (approx.)
- Product code: 2019Sharkweek
Please see the website description for full details. The focus is on basking sharks but we have many other wildlife opportunities such as snorkelling with seals, observing whales, dolphins & porpoises, seabirds and eagles. We do run a trip to the Puffin colony but please note this is only available on week 1 & 2. There is also a chance of very rare species sightings such as sunfish, orca and turtles. Shore based wildlife trips to see otters will be arranged along with other activities such as diving, kayaking or SUPs.
The trip runs Saturday to Saturday, with activity days Sunday to Friday and travel to/from the island via ferry from Oban on the Saturdays.

Week 2 - 27th July - 3rd August 2019
Week 3 - 3rd August - 10th August 2019 (less chance of Puffins)
Week 4 -10th August - 17th August 2019 (no Puffins)
