  1. Hi all, Just to let you know that we have one or two spots on our popular basking shark trips based out of Mull. We have several block booked weeks, but during some interim weeks between the mid to end of July there are some trips made up of individuals passengers that have one or two spaces free per trip. These are either aboard our day boat/cottage accommodation, or for this year we have started a small live aboard trip. We tested it out last week and I can honestly say it worked extremely well and is something we will be doing again in the future. Please let me know if you would like to take advantage of diving (snorkelling) with these sharks with a friendly and experienced team. Increasingly friendly seals are also possible on this trip - as well as some very respectable macro opportunities. For a taster, take a look at Simon Spear's Solstice that was shot with us a couple or three years ago. http://vimeo.com/37143093 http://www.acuatours.com/dive-basking-sharks-uk.html Thanks, Mark.
  2. Hi all, Just to let you know there are a handful of individuals spaces available for a basking shark charter with us, form the 7th to 13th July 2013. Weeks either side of this are blocked out with full charters, so this is a unique opportunity to join one of these amazing trips (my words, endorsed by anyone who has ever been on the trip). email me at writepic@gmail.com for more details. thanks, mark.
  3. Thanks for the thumbs up alex!! Dates now changed 12th to 18th Aug for this extra week. Boat days Mon to Fri.
  4. Due to the large amount of sharks present currently 30 to 40 per day, we are offering an extra week this year, from the 4th to 11th of August. There is already interest in filling this boat, and it would be good to fill it (only 6 spaces available). This trip is raved about by everyone who goes on it. I'm not just saying that to fill it, I love this trip to bits and love it when new people discover how special it is. more detail on acuatours.com or email me at either writepic@gmail.com or acuatours@gmail.com
