Been out with Sealife Surveys twice on two different visits to Mull. Once on the 4 hour cruise and once on the 7 hour whale watch. Unfortunately as is the way with wildlife, its not guaranteed and we weren't blessed with any of the big ceteceans on either of our trips. However, the trip is excellent the staff very friendly,...

Spent a full day on the Sula Beag 7 hour whale watching trip. The boat left Tobermory promptly following an introduction to the crew, a brief of what to expect during the trip and safety/housekeeping information. The crew are very knowledgable and passionate about marine life and nature in general and took the time to answer all questions. Sadly no... More

Had a truly wonderful day with Sea Life Surveys. The sea was very calm and we saw porpoise and a feeding frenzy of gannets and shearwaters as well as minke wales but what made this a trip of a lifetime was a visit from a very special minke identified as Kasey, she actually came right up to our boat, swam...

This is the second trip we've done with Sea Life Surveys and it didn't disappoint. Eagles,Minke Whales, Porpoises, Gannets galore, hundreds of Manx Shearwaters, Skuas, and many many more. Well worth every penny. Crew of Popz, Ewan, Andy and Rhona are all so enthusiastic about the wildlife and conversation. Can't wait for trip number three!!

We booked a 7h whale watch tour in June 2014. The departure was on time and the ship a comfortable one with plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. Being out in the sea watching minke whales, dolphins, eagles, seals and different kinds of sea birds was an unforgettable experience. We also enjoyed trawling plankton out of the sea and examining...

This was our 4th time taking the day long trip with Sealife Surveys. The fact that we have returned is a strong indicator that we have enjoyed every trip. This trip (on 10th June) was for us the best ever - it was superb!! As always the crew were very welcoming and informative throughout. As always the wildlife were the... More

We went for the Wildlife Adventure 4hrs trip, as we were not sure if the whole family would be al-right with a 7hr trip. The crew looked after us well, with a short talk about Sea Life Survey & how it started, what we were hoping to see & were we would go. We had good views of sea &... More

We went on the 7 Hour Whalewatch Explorer Cruise at the start of this week and had a fantastic time. Our crew - Ewan, Pops, Johanna and Rona were brilliant and really made the trip. Ewans knowledge and passion for the sea life was infectious and it was great to see examples of the wildlife we might see as we... More

Last year we took the shorter wildlife adventure cruise, which was great but this year we took the 7 hour Whalewatch Adventure on May 26th. The trip was amazing with 3 Mike Whales (including the famous "Knobble"), porpoises and the highlight was a massive pod of dolphins leaping and playing - how Andy spotted them in the horizon beats me...

We loved our day trip and would recommend the 7 hour trips - the whole day gives you a really good chance of seeing lots of different types of wildlife - we were lucky enough to see whales and dolphins, along with lots of seals, porpoises and birds. The guys in the boat are extremely knowledgeable and clearly love what... More
