Innovative small-ship cruise company, The Majestic Line, has confirmed their partnership with one of the country’s top wildlife guides, providing an exciting land tour on their new 2014 Hebridean cruise, named ‘Around Mull: Wildlife Explorer’.
Owner, Andy Thoms, said: “We’re delighted to work with David Woodhouse, whose ground-breaking wildlife expeditions on the Island Of Mull have been delighting visitors for over thirty years. On our new ‘Wildlife Explorer’ cruise around this Hebridean wildlife paradise, we invite guests on a voyage of discovery, exploring the island’s rich and diverse natural world. The addition of this new day land tour to the cruise will give guests the maximum opportunity to encounter spectacular wildlife, thriving in the pristine island environment, all guided under the informed eye of our new wildlife expert.”
The Majestic Line’s new ‘Around Mull: Wildlife Explorer’ cruise is aimed at guests keen to discover the many extraordinary diverse and rare species that has made this island one of the premier hotspots for wildlife in the UK. The company’s crew of four have sailed these sheltered waters for many years and have first-hand experience of spotting incredible wildlife throughout the cruising season such as basking sharks, porpoises, Minke whales, otters, white-tailed and golden eagles. Guests can soak up an abundance of wildlife in comfort and style aboard The Majestic Line’s mini cruise ships, enjoying exceptional hospitality against a stunning backdrop of mountains, remote white sandy beaches, and ancient castles.
Andy added: “Encountering a pod of dolphins as the vessel sails into a tranquil bay at the Island of Iona, sailing deep into spectacular Fingal’s Cave at Staffa or getting up close to colourful puffins at the beautiful Treshnish Islands, are unforgettable experiences for our guests. Adding a day land tour with David will ensure our guests are more likely to encounter a wider variety of Mull’s diverse wildlife, and learn where and how to find them. We’re confident our combined passion for this area of outstanding beauty, with the added bonus of David’s vast knowledge and experience, will provide guests with an enriching and inspiring insight into the wonderful wildlife of Mull.”
