Whales on Hebridean Whale Cruises in Gairloch

Attraction Information

Hebridean Whale Cruises offer whale watching and wildlife cruises from Gairloch, on the spectacular north west coast of Scotland, whose glittering Hebridean waters contain an abundance of marine wildlife!
Daily trips are available, either offshore to whale and dolphin feeding areas in the open waters of the North Minch, or inshore around the natural wildlife haven of Loch Gairloch. For fun and adventure, they have the Orca 1, an open RHIB that can speed you safely to offshore destinations, or if you prefer a bit more comfort and stability, try the M.V. Kerry, a classic offshore cruiser.

Whether you choose the Whale watching of wildlife cruise, you are sure to have a ‘whale' of a time! Offshore, you are likely to see whales, porpoises, dolphins and even sharks, while the shoreline has several seal colonies, plus families of otters! You may also see birds, such as the lovable Puffin, the rare White tailed eagle or maybe the spectacular Golden Eagle. Red deer can also been seen on the shore.

A full safety briefing will be given before you board, and Orca 1 passengers will also be given a full body floatation suit that is worn over normal clothing. Kids will love the Orca 1, and it has special jockey seats that allow and adult and child to sit together, however all passengers must be able to hold the boat's hand holds, so this many not be suitable for the smalls.

Gloves and hats (that won't blow off!) are a good idea, as are flat heeled shoes. And don't forget your camera!
