Expedition Basking shark

This safari is the ultimate combination of adventure, activity and Hebredean wildlife, and is planned to end during the absolute peak season to see the area's wildlife. The focus is on seeing the basking sharks, but the itinerary is flexible so that we also have the opportunity for other exciting experiences.

We have planned the trip so that we have a week in place on the island of Coll, and thus have a high probability of having good encounters with basking sharks and other animals, such as seals and puffins. In addition to wildlife there is wonderful scenery and beautiful coastal stretches, right on the border of the North Atlantic. The weather can be interchangeable, so having a full week in place gives you the best conditions to take advantage of the days when the weather is beautiful to see as much as possible.
