Join us on board our research yacht, Silurian, as we depart from Tobermory (on the Isle of Mull) to monitor the rich Hebridean seas. This unique eco-tourism experience is like no other in the UK; explore the wilds of the Hebrides, have some awesome wildlife experiences, meet fantastic people and join a community of people getting directly involved in the conservation of whales, dolphins, porpoises and basking sharks.
This expedition survey falls in the middle of our field season so we will be monitoring for both resident populations alongside seasonal visitors.
With rendezvous in Tobermory, this survey will allow for the exploration of seas around the Southern Hebrides (Islay, Jura, Colonsay, Gigha) alongide the Argyll Islands (Mull, Coll and Tiree) and the Small Isles (Muck, Eigg, Canna and Rum), although the area covered is dependent on the weather conditions and survey coverage to date.
Summer in the Hebrides is an awe inspiring time. The daylight hours are long and nature is takes full advantage of this with creatures foraging to feed their young and lay down fat stores for the winter months ahead.
