9th Wildlife Tour just finished, and finally saw Porpoise! (Must have been listening to Steve the skipper!) Great thing about these trips is that whatever the weather, it's still just as fun (to be fair, the wilder the weather, the more fun you have with the waves!) and it doesn't matter if you don't see a certain animal...

It is hard to fault our experience with Seafari. After kitting up with waterproofs, binoculars and life jackets we were taken to our boat. After a safety briefing we were on our way. Paddy, our guide gave us lots of information on the social and natural history of the islands. We saw common and grey seals, eagles, red deer and... More

We had a great 2 hour tour. Saw plenty wildlife and you get fully kitted out with weather proofs. Staff very friendly and knowledgeable. Well worth the trip. Great day out.

So pleased we made the trip from Glasgow - a cracking day out as well as over 2 hours on the water with Seafari at Ellenabeich. After being kindly picked up by Jess of Seafari from Oban, we took a jaunt to the nearby (read: 2 minute speedboat) island of Easdale for lunch, before being well kitted-out in waterproofs with...

I've been on 3 brilliant trips with this company before and I've enjoyed every one of them. Real life memories! It wasn't until the 4th trip that I realised what a truly great company this is. I had booked one of the first whirlpool specials of the year on an enormous tide so my girlfriend and I were very excited.... More

Our Seafari trip out to the amazing Corryvreckan whirlpool was the highlight of our Easter holiday. Well equipped clothing and a powerful RIB well-prepared for being out on the sea, with excited children aged 7 and 10, we were lucky to have fantastic weather with blue skies. We saw Golden Eagle, a White Tailed Eagle on its nest, a few... More

A great experience for whole family, a lot of animals seen (eagle, seals, purpoys, deer) and many other comments about surrounds by staff. A very good equipment provided and even more if you need (but come with warm clothes). No whirlpool due to tide time.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review - yes, the action in the Corryvreckan is dependent on tidal conditions but we often find the wildlife sightings are better when the Corryvreckan isn't so active. Once again, many thanks and we hope to see you again ! More
