There are few experiences like observing wildlife in its natural habitat. Connecting with the natural world and watching it unfold in its original environment lets us tap into something bigger than ourselves. It can even let us experience a sense of our place in the overall ecosystem of our planet. No wildlife viewing experience offers the same level of awe and wonder as whale watching tours near Eden. Whales are one of the most majestic creatures on the planet, and the chance to see them up close and personal is something everyone should have the opportunity to experience at least once. Whether you’re visiting on holiday or you want to take some friends on an unforgettable adventure, why choose more crowded tours where space is at a premium?
With Rathlin II Fishing Charters, there’s never a need to struggle to see the whales or to jockey for position at the rail for a quick glimpse at the animals. Instead, there’s always plenty of space for everyone in your charter group to enjoy the experience. Eden offers whale watching of exceptional quality during the prime season, which runs from September to November as the whales migrate southward. With years of experience in providing these types of tours, we know how to get you to the best viewing spots.
Everything necessary for a superior whale watching cruise near Eden
These tours typically run about three hours from departure to return. For the best chance of viewing the whales, especially for opportunities to catch them while feeding, we depart at 8 AM sharp to head out to the areas most likely to provide opportunities for whale watching. Coffee, soft drinks, and tea are all available from our onboard galley. Along the way, be sure to watch out for all kinds of other wildlife, including migrating shearwaters and even the occasional dolphin. There’s always something new to see on every cruise.
Once spotted, we keep a safe distance from the whales — but sometimes they get curious about us, too! From time to time we may even be lucky enough to witness one of these creatures swimming very near to the vessel. Be sure to have your cameras at the ready, as you won’t want to miss the opportunity to document this experience.
