2 hour Whirlpool Experience

To give the best chance of seeing whirlpools this trip will only run on a Spring Ebb tide when the tide is at its strongest, this happens for a few days every two weeks around a new and full moon.  See whirlpool-scotland.co.uk  when to see the whirlpool for dates of Spring tides, or our trip calendar for trip dates and departure times.

See the maelstrom in action, learn why it happens, hear tales of Prince Breckan and the Calliach. Please note that strength of tide, wind strength and direction, atmospheric pressure, and whether it is a Flood or Ebb tide will affect what you see on the day, every day, every hour, is different. A Spring Flood tide tends to produce standing waves, a Spring Ebb tide a series of upthrusts and whirlpools with sometimes one big whirlpool. Although this trip is principally about the whirlpool we will stop to look at any interesting wildlife we see along the way.

See our new site www.whirlpool-scotland.co.uk for more information on how it works, its history, and folklore.
