Basking Shark Scotland

to coincide with the shark’s migration to the area where they feed on the abundant plankton. We also combine our tours with snorkelling with seals and amazing wild swimming spots.We also organise the Coll of the Sharks festival ( here again 2016).

This is a completely natural experience and as such there are no guarantees of seeing basking sharks, however since our trips cover more ground than any other operator on a speedy highly seaworthy vessel – our trips one of the better chances of seeing the sharks, our normal trips cover over 80- nautical miles /dayso it’s a whistle stop tour of the hebrides.  Our area of operation is a known basking shark ‘hotspot’ and is also widely known as one the best areas in the whole world for basking sharks. In addition to the regular shark sightings, our trips include whales, dolphins, seals, golden eagles, puffins and many other seabirds. Combine this with the stunning scenery of Argyll, volcanic wonders of Fingal’s Cave, historical landscape of castles, abbeys and ruins- there is a huge amount to take in!

We are able to cater for a variety of people on our shark swims that can range from complete snorkelling beginners to underwater photographers and videographers who wish to obtain amazing footage of these gentle giant, to recreational divers and snorkelers, along with non-divers who wish to achieve unforgettable experiences. For those not so keen on being just so close and getting wet, you are made very welcome as one of our shark watchers on board the boat. We want to make the experience the best it can possibly be so please do not hesitate to ask us any questions you might have.
