The usual September weekend kept the boys busy. It was mixed weather but some cracking sunrises and sunsets. There was a charter to Tobermory and another down to the Corryvreckan. The wildlife showed up too with the regular sea eagles. Bottlenose dolphins made an appearance on the Morvern shore too. The quieter time is coming but still a fair few runs out on the water.
Over the season there has a been some incredible sightings of the white tailed sea eagles. Many different locations from just outside Oban to the island of Coll. Great to see so many about and doing so well. Never get tired of seeing them and appreciating their shear size. 8 foot wingspan is a sight to be hold.
The boys as always have ben running clients around the islands.
Struan had the Pipe band from Mull, as they were too late for the Calmac ferry. Calm weather made it an easy run. Lismore Lighthouse too has been busy.
For another year they moved the ball goers from Mull to Oban for the annual Ball after the Oban games. Early runs back to Mull for them to catch up on some much needed sleep. The weather has been mixed as you can imagine.
Cameron was out round the Garvellachs last week. On board he had walking group that walked from Dunkeld to Oban! The final leg was out to Iona, but for a bit of a rest day they went out on the water. Cameron landed them at the Garvellachs then after a picnic there he headed for the Grey Dogs and the Corryvreckan. The spring tides put on powerful displays in both locations. To top it off they had sea eagles close to the boat on the way to Loch Spelve. After a drop off on Mull Cameron head back to base.
A few weeks ago Cameron had a private charter from Loch Buie. They hit lucky with the weather and headed out West. At Staffa they had a pod of bottlenose dolphins and they put on an amazing display for everyone. After this they headed to Lunga and then Iona. The perfect weather topped the day off. One of the guests managed to get a great photo from his iPhone of the dolphin leaping out.
That is another year done for the puffins on Lunga. The bulk have all headed out to the Atlantic and are set to return to land in 2018. The boys have had many trips to Lunga this season and the wee birds never fail to impress the guests. We look forward to next season.
