Overview

The Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Centre highlights the unique diversity of whales, dolphins and porpoises found in the waters of the Hebrides. Situated on the harbour front in Tobermory, we are open daily from 10:30 to 16:30 Saturday to Thursday during April and May. Open every day 10:30 to 16:30 from 1st June to 30th September. Opening part time for the autumn. As well as information on cetaceans, interactive exhibits, activities for children and a gift shop, we offer talks on Bones, Baleen and teeth, and access to our 16 years of data. This includes species information and sightings collected from our boat and citizen scientists. Recent sightings can be accessed from the centre and via our ' Whale Track' app. Entry to the centre is free - donations welcome. We also host evening talks and special events throughout the summer, including scientific talks and headland watches using Opticron binoculars.

The shop had various rooms to find out more about these wonderful creatures. You could buy things to support the work they do. Truly worth a visit if you travel to Torbermory.
