4hr whirlpool special
Date: Wed May 24th, 2017
We run these trips during big, spring tides when the whirlpool is at its most dramatic. You will experience the thrill and power of the infamous Corryvreckan - a trip to remember! The power of the whirlpool depends on the tides (which are predictable) and the sea state (which is less predictable). Every two weeks there are big 'spring tides' when the whirlpool is at its most active at the height of the flood and ebb tide. The tides change direction every six hours (slack water) and run at their strongest mid-way between slacks. These trips are timed to put you at the whirlpool during its strongest run. If you are looking for a high-spirited adventure, than this is the trip for you! With almost 900 horsepower, Sealife Adventures' large, seaworthy boat offers exceptional speed and stability. This is the most seaworthy boat operating these trips. In the stronger tides you will see the whirlpool at its most dramatic, this can make spotting wildlife more difficult in the whirlpool areas. However, since these trips follow a similar route to the 3 & 4 hour Corryvreckan Wildlife Cruise we would still expect to see a good diversity of species.
