Sealife adventures run whale watching and wildlife boat trips from our private pontoon and car park on the mainland near Oban. We run 3,4 and 5 hour trips which are suitable for all ages. All our trips include the famous Corryvreckan whirlpool. We are the longest established operator in the area (26 years), our owner skipper David has a degree in marine biology. Our stable spacious boat is the most powerful in the area and holds the highest certificate of seaworthiness.

David and Jen give a very good welcome. The boat is roomy allowing for moving about the deck if there is something to see. David knows the area very well and took us to places that gave us the best chance of seeing the local nature. As its nature, animals etc do not always perform and appear, but what we... More

A wonderful wildlife experience off the West Coast of Scotland. Skipper David and guide Sarah are highly experienced, very knowledgeable and sensitive to the wildlife and the environment. They clearly love what they do and share their knowledge and passion generously. As with all proper wildlife adventures (no feeding!) you never know what you're going to see, but with this... More

If you like wildlife you need to experience this trip!! The crew are very knowledgable and keen to share their passion of wildlife with others and the skipper ensured everyone saw any wildlife that was near before moving on. The boat is a serious piece of kit , very powerful and comfortable. Is a heated wheelhouse with toilet and waterproofs... More

We went on a 3 hour boat trip with David and Sarah and it was the high light of our stay in Argyllshire. We got lucky and got to see 1 (maybe even 2) minke whales much to the absolute delight of our 7 year old. David and Sarah were informative and welcoming and their passion for the sea and... More

Everyone was offered a hot drink, biscuits, binoculars (which are excellent) and waterproofs. We then set off on our adventure, the boat is not packed we only had 8 on board which allows everyone lots of... More

Had a great trip out with David and Charlotte, Saw otters almost as soon as we left the pontoon then seals, porpoises, lots of various sea birds but best of all a pair of sea eagles as we spun round in the wirlpool. Unfortunately a bit late in the year for whales but then you can't have everything. Also deer... More

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
