This is run by marine biologists so their knowledge makes any trip much more interesting. The boat is fast but very comfortable and offers good facilities. I couldn't go on an organised tour but joined a diving day. I was made very welcome and couldn't ask for more. A huge thanks to David and his team for being so kind... More

We took the 3 hour whirlpool trip as it was the only one available to fit in with our itinerary. David and Charlotte were fantastic hosts, very friendly and knowledgeable. The weather was glorious, flat calm with bright sunshine, seals were spotted almost as soon as we left the jetty. As with all these trips, there's a certain amount of... More

A wonderful 4 hour whirlpool trip where we saw a high amount of wildlife including seals, porpoises and many sea birds. We also saw where the sea eagles nest. David and Charlotte were brilliant and a special thank you to Charlotte, I learnt so much from her today, she knows her wildlife and the local area like no other. I... More

This is our 3rd 5-hour cruise with David. All have been different and all have been brilliant and each one has been a wonderful experience. We are planning our next trip already. David's considerable knowledge of the wildlife, and the terrain is extremely obvious and is surely the main reason that we see so much otherwise elusive wildlife. This trip... More

The 4-hour boat trip was really great. The skipper David, his wife and the wildlife guide Charlotte were sooo nice. Hot and cold drinks as well as biscuits were included. We were lucky to see approximately 12 dolphins swimming and playing around our boat. We have also seen porpoise and visited the so called "whirlpool". The weather was very sunny... More

We took the four hour boat trip. The weather was acceptable, not as bright and sunny as our first few days but actually far better than the forecast. That's by the way as the boat crew have little control over that! Suffice to say it certainly helps. Good, enjoyable ride, saw porpoises, seals, eagles, goats and deer, sadly the whales... More

I chose the 5 hour cruise as I thought there'd be more chance of seeing wildlife but you only spend a small portion of those hours in the area you're most likely to see whales in. The crew were friendly and informative but i think the leaflet is misleading. It talks about a warm area you can wait in -... More

Sealife Adventures usually treats it's clients to a wonderful wildlife experience but on occasion other excitements are offered. My husband and myself were stuck hard on a rock off Luing in our yacht . The tide was going out and we were very glad to see David in his sturdy vessel come racing towards us from The direction of Jura.... More

We were on tour with our 2 kids (6 and 5) with David and Sara for the 3hrs Tour. First of all I want to compliment them because everything was very well organized, Safety, equipment (binocular for adults and Kids, waterproof trousers for adults). Sara's explanations gave sense to everything we saw. we were supposed to see porpoise and seals... More
