Swim with sharks in the UK with this incredible experience for two along the Scottish coast. Set sail from Oban, taking in historical sights and see seals, whales, eagles, seabirds and dolphins along the route. Under the guidance of a seasoned expert, arrive at the target area of Coll and Tiree and search known locations for basking sharks. Locating these impressive wild creatures of the sea cannot be guaranteed, but is certainly likely. Watch the behaviour of the world's second largest fish to make sure it is relaxed before you both get in the water to swim in close proximity. Basking sharks can reach 26 feet in length but are not aggressive. With so much wildlife to spot and learn about, this is an unforgettable day exploring UK sea life!
