Shark Watching in Oban, Scotland
There's no need to travel outside the UK to see sharks. This experience gives you the opportunity to take a tour of the beautiful Scottish coast, looking out for the country's very own sharks! Set off from Oban, sailing through the Sound of Mull and take in wild and historical sights like Duart Castle and the stunning waterfront of Tobermory in the company of whales, seabirds, dolphins, eagles and seals. Arrive at the target area of Coll and Tiree and search known 'hotspots' for basking sharks. Locating these majestic beasts of the water can't be guaranteed, but it's very likely and there are lots of great chances to take pictures, study behaviour and record sightings of the gracious creatures. This is an unforgettable day exploring UK sea life!
