Snorkelling with basking sharks, Scotland

23, July 2017 - 29, July 2017

Basking shark

Join me as we go in search of one of the ocean’s largest fish, as they migrate through the Isle of Mull.

The Plan:
Each year, aggregations of basking sharks migrate down the West coast of Scotland. Attracted by the plankton rich waters of the Inner Hebrides, the sharks are frequently seen from May to September. The best time of year to interact with these gentle giants is early June through to late August. Our vessel for our week is the über comfortable Bold Ranger. A Nelson 42ft motor cruiser, captained by one of Scotalnd’s most experienced skippers. The Isle of Mull has earned an enviable reputation as a premier wildlife tourism destination in the UK, and we’ll be staying right in the heart in the picturesque town of Tobermoray. If this has wetted your appetitite for adventure, click the link and learn more about the West coast of Scotland and our Basking Shark Expedition.
