A comfortable and exhilarating experience, too many dolphins to count and roughly18 minke whales. A brilliant day!

Best Monday I've had for a long time! Fantastic trip with Hebridean Whale Cruises. We saw Manx shearwaters, storm petrels, guillemots, razorbills, gannets, gulls, bonxies, harbour porpoises, seals, minke whales lunge feeding and my favourite, common dolphins! What a day!!
