4 hour whale search and whirlpool
Date: Thu June 29th, 2017
Our powerful and stable boat is ideal for longer offshore trips. With over 25 years as an owner / skipper in the area, and as a marine biologist, David knows the best places to look for whales.
The Whale Spotting Cruises are run in the summer which is the best time to head offshore in search of minke whales. Whales, dolphins, porpoise, otters and seals feed in different areas depending on the state of the tide, so to give you the best chance of sightings we time our cruises according to the tides. If it is a bit rough, we take the opportunity to take a detailed look at the rich wildlife in the shelter of the many local islands. The best time of the year for whale watching is from June to September.
These longer trips include all the sights of our shorter trips and also normally include the very special offshore islands of the Garvellachs, including the Holy Isle where St. Brendan founded a famous monastery 1500 years ago. We can land on the islands and visit these ruins as a private charter.
