Shetland Islands and Basking Sharks – 2023

Shetland Islands

Join Blue Green Expeditions as we combine two epic experiences into one amazing package! Come join us onboard the m/v Valhalla on a rebreather friendly liveaboard diving the Shetland Islands followed by three days snorkeling with one of the largest sharks in the world, Basking Sharks! The Shetland Islands are a wreck divers dream. Life on the wrecks is stunning with loads of fish, anemones, and nudibranches and the average visibility can range from 10m - 25m which is pretty amazing in these cool green waters! The wrecks are remarkably untouched and vary in depths for recreational and technical dives. The Shetlands have everything from historic wrecks to modern trawlers. Cetaceans are common here and we will often be joined by minkes, orcas, porpoises and dolphins on our journey! We will then travel to Oban for our next adventure with the basking sharks. This is one of the biggest hotspots in the world to see them! Basking sharks typically range from 20 - 26 feet long but no worries, they eat plankton and are harmless! We hope you can join us on this amazing trip!
