On board Silurian

Crew of the SilurianSilurian is HWDTs research and education vessel.

Most weeks April through October she is either monitoring the waters of the west coast of Scotland for whales, dolphins, and porpoises, or serving as a floating classroom for one of the many Argyll island primary and secondary schools.

Read the log below to find out what Silurian and her crew have been up to each week and all about the whales, dolphins and porpoises they spot!  To find out about the latest marine life sightings spotted elsewhere, click here.

Earthwatch educators week

This week is a special week for HWDT and Earthwatch, we have five primary school teachers on board who are here to learn all about the marine environment of the west coast and the work of HWDT. The week combines the usual HWDT survey work with practical sessions in the evenings, where the teachers are developing a teaching resource based on their learning experience on 'Silurian'. In this way they hope to take something valuable and long-lasting back to the classroom about the Hebridean marine environment. For full details ont he project and daily blogs go to
