Swim with sharks

Come and swim with Scotland's biggest fish! Basking Shark Scotland is the only dedicated basking shark tour operator based from Oban.

The Basking Shark Scotland tours are organised from June to August to coincide with the shark's migration to the area where they feed on the abundant plankton. Choose from single, two, three-day and week-long shark swimming and wildlife excursions to the Inner Hebrides.

In addition to the regular shark sightings, trips include chances to see whales, dolphins, seals, golden eagles, puffins and many other seabirds.

Scuba diving in the area can be claimed to be some of the best cold water diving in the world, with many shipwrecks, abundant reefs and big animal encounters such as seals and sharks. Shore-based diving, hiking, historical and whisky tours can be arranged for groups, as can a whole host of bespoke itineraries.
