Last Berths Available for Expeditions

There are only a couple of berths available to join us aboard to monitor for whales, dolphins, porpoises and basking sharks in the Hebrides.  Have the experience of a lifetime; live aboard with our crew, exploring the Hebrides whilst contributing to a fuller understanding of this diverse marine environment. Absolutely no experience is required to join us aboard as full training is provided.


There is only one standard surveys (for those aged 18 or older) with availability:

  • 14th – 25th August: £1,395 (Only 1 berth available) - Tobermory rendezvous

My trips on Silurian have been inspirational. It's a privilege to encounter wildlife in such a beautiful marine environment but to feel that you, as a team member, are contributing to the understanding of the cetaceans in these waters is very special indeed, it's something that will stay with you for ever. Every day is different and every encounter significant.” Jan Storie (Silurian volunteer five times!)

There is also availability on our dedicated Joint Warrior Survey - running 1st - 12th October - scheduled to coincide with the massive NATO military exercise held in the Hebrides twice a year.  The Trust believe that it is incredibly important to monitor cetacean presence during these exercises. We are the only organisation collecting long term monitoring data in this area and are therefore best placed to monitor the potential effect of naval activities.

We also have one berth available on our dedicated Teen Team Survey (for those aged 16 or 17) - the final berth must go to a male in accordance with our Child Protection Policy where cabins must be shared by those of the same gender. This survey provides a fantastic opportunity to sail the Hebrides and collect data on whales, dolphins and porpoises (collectively known as cetaceans), as well as sea birds, litter, environmental variables, marine noise and creel buoys (as part of our Minke Whale Entanglement Project).
