Itinerary 

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 and hopefully 3. 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.
