Basking Shark Trips


A truly unique wildlife experience in the Scottish Highlands, the Basking Shark trips will give you the chance to witness amazing basking sharks along with a whole host of other wildlife in their natural habitat, framed by the stunning and breathtaking scenery of the Scottish Western Isles. The full day trips leave from our great location in Lochaline right on the Sound of Mull .

While on the trips you will also have the chance to see a huge variety of the Scottish wildlife including dolphins, seals, eagles and more, all while taking in the wild and beautiful scenery the area is famed for as we sail on the full day excursion.


While on board you will be accompanied by an experienced skipper and crew with in-depth knowledge of the area, hot drinks and cake will be provided, and passengers will have access to a proper toilet on the boat.

The all day trips will set off from Lochaline around 9am and return about 4pm. The O2 Café at the dive centre provides delicious freshly baked cakes, homemade soups, tasty sandwiches and paninis, daily specials and a range of coffees, teas and hot chocolate so you can relax and have a bite to eat after your adventure into the Sound of Mull.
