Whale Watching from Easdale 16 miles south of Oban has many advantages. This tour, whilst focusing on looking for whales, also combines looking for major wildlife species currently in our area.
The boat will head south to an island chain known as The Garvellachs, home of the early monastic settlement of St Brendan (542 AD). Whales congregate to feed just to the south of The Garvellachs where deep, food rich, Atlantic waters rise to the surface. Plenty of food means plenty of whales. The RIB then sweeps east towards the north end of Jura, another of the recognised whale feeding hot spots. The boat will be stationed in the more exposed sea areas west of the Corryvreckan whirlpool area known as The Great Race.
We spend time whale watching, recording our sightings as requested by Research Organisations. Our fleet of boats are out on the water daily, skippers are aware of what wildlife is currently in our area. This trip is timed to offer the best chance of success to view whales but whales are wild animals and sightings cannot be guaranteed. We will make every effort to find these magnificent creatures but your skipper may alter the content of this tour as he sees appropriate.
