We offer a range of science and conservation on our trips where you can join a tour where we collect information or a specific scientific voyage with goals as follows;
Along with the study of the sharks we will have the opportunity to look for and record other exciting marine life such as whales, dolphins, porpoises, seals and seabirds during our time at sea. Passengers with enough experience will be able to swim with the sharks during these trips and we will be collecting underwater information about any sharks that we observe on the expeditions. Photographers and videographers are most welcome on the trips and will benefit from fewer passenger numbers on the boat than our usual trips.
The expedition also includes a series of info-talks on the ecology and conservation of basking sharks by our trained marine biologists.
