A great Experience located handily in Oban, Argyll and Bute.
You don’t need to travel far to see the second largest living fish on earth. Take a tour for two of the Scottish coast, seeking the UK’s very own sharks! Set sail from Oban, through the Sound of Mull, taking in natural and historic sights like the stunning waterfront of Tobermory, Duart Castle and spot whales, seabirds, dolphins, eagles and seals along the way. Arrive at the destination of Coll and Tiree to scan the best basking shark ‘hotspots’. Sightings can never be guaranteed, but are very likely and, once spotted, there are lots of great chances to take photos, study behaviour and record sightings of these magnificent wild creatures. With loads of wildlife to spot and so much to learn, this is an unforgettable day exploring UK sea life!
