Breaching Basking Shark

This season we have seen an unusually high number of breaching Basking Sharks. Why they do this no-one really knows, and whilst many of us have seen this amazing sight, very few have ever caught it on camera. However Susan Brigden who joined one of our 3 hour trips on board Hebridean Explorer back at the beginning of July managed to get this amazing photo.

Peregrine Falcons

Good sightings already this morning, not from the boat but from the Explore Mull desk in the Harbour Visitor Centre in Tobermory. Three Peregrine Falcons flew over; one of them a presumed juvenile was calling loudly while the other two were more interested in going after the pigeons roosting in the church tower.

Welcome to our new website

Thank you for visiting our new website about the whales, dolphins and other sea life surrounding the Hebrides, and in particular the isle of Mull.
We hope you find it interesting.
Our blog is going to be used to let you know about the wildlife sightings from our boat trips and let you know about anything exciting seen around the island in general.
