Barry Davies

I have to open these pages this year on a sad note. My father Baz passed away last Autumn. Regular readers will know that Baz wrote these notes and religiously kept our sightings data up-to-date. A founder of our company and the original Skipper of the M.V. Kerry, Baz was at the heart of Hebridean Whale Cruises. He is greatly missed by us all.

New This Season

18 March 2007

Hebridean Whale Cruises is getting a second boat. The Kerry will be joined by an offshore RHIB which we plan to name 'Orca 1'. We expect her to arrive in May. Watch this space!

We are joined this year by a new 'seagoing' member of the team, James McCall. When Orca 1 arrives in May I will become her Skipper and James will take over from me on the Kerry. For this season, James will be leading our inshore cruises in and around Loch Gairloch.

Porpoises, Ducks and Eagles

31 March 2007

The Kerry has been launched again and we have undertaken a few early-season cruises.

Long-tailed Duck – March 2007

We have encountered some Harbour Porpoises that were well offshore, and Long-tailed Ducks – my favourite European sea duck.

We checked the usual seal colonies on the shores of Loch Gairloch and they seem to be in excellent health; and we had a good sighting of a White-tailed Eagle.
