This fabulous expedition wildlife cruise aboard both our vessels is new for 2021. The focus is to find as many cetacean species as we can in the best area of the west coast of Scotland and at the best time of year for spotting these rare animals. From Oban, we will cruise the Sound of Mull, the Small Isles and Isle of Skye before reaching the Northern Minch, between the Outer Hebrides and the far north west of mainland Scotland. Off the coast of Lewis and around the Shiant Islands we will be on the lookout for large baleen whales, namely humpback whales, fin whales and sei whales. In the far reaches of the Northern Minch, nearer the Scottish mainland we will be looking for orca and pilot whales. The deeper waters of the Northern Minch is where we hope to see Risso’s dolphins and white beaked dolphins. Minke whales, common dolphins, bottlenose dolphins and porpoises can show up at any point throughout the cruise as well as spotting the iconic rare sea bird species: Manx, sooty and great shearwaters; storm and Leaches petrel and great, arctic, pomarine and long tailed skuas. On top of all of that there are amazing remote stopovers with options for exploring onshore, such as  the Summer Isles, Handa Island & Sea Stack, Loch Laxford, Loch Nedd, Kylesku, Badcall Islands and Stornoway.
