We went out on the Corrievreckan Wildlife Trip today (2 hours). We had perfect conditions (smooth sea and sun) and the trip was a joy. In addition to seeing deer, wild goats on the islands, we also saw a pair White Tailed Sea Eagles, as well as experiencing the excitement of Grey Dogs and the whirlpools in the Gulf of... More

Excellent trip, saw loads of wildlife (including a baby seal!) and enjoyed getting out on the sea. Definitely wrap up warm - it was sunny on the day we went on the trip but out on the sea the wind is cold!! Will be back for the whirlpool special :-)

Participating in the Seafari tour was really amazing! It combined the observation of a huge ammount of wildlife (otters, seals, deers, mountain goats...) with a lot of information regarding the isles of Easdale, Scaffa, Luing and Jura, regarding their history, geology and wildlife... The whirlpool phenomenom is also a snapshot of adrenalina in the trip! The Seafari team (specially Carolyn)... More

Went on the trip to experience the Corryvreckan whirlpools on the evening tide. Very impressed with the preparation - waterproof trousers and top to fit everyone (even children) and lifejackets. Great fun on the run out (two fast rigid inflatable boats, so could bounce around off each othere's wakes). Visited first straight to see how much the sea slopes due... More

A very professional service providing sea trip to view various forms of wildlife. Each passenger is equipped with waterproof clothing and a lifejacket. The crew was knowledgeable and took us to sites where we could observe, seals eagles and deer. I was hoping to see the Corryvreckan whirlpool but although we visited the site the water there was relatively benign.... More

I'd done a Seafari trip around 7 years ago and when trying to think of a great trip to do with a friend visiting from New York and my partner who is from Fife I immediately thought of Sea-Fari. Truly a brilliant way to show off this beautiful little corner of the world. We arrived down in Ellenabeich to take... More

This is a RIB (Rigid Inflateable Boat) tour around some of the islands west of Easdale. We were a family of four (10 and 7 year old) and we all loved it. The team were very helpful in the booking, and we arrived early and were kitted out for waterproofs (more for rain than the sea spray) and off we... More

After really enjoying the wildlife trip in June, we came back for the whirlpool trip, with high expectations. We weren't disappointed, the boat ride was great fun, riding the whirlpools was a laugh, and glad of the waterproofs :) Totally recommended, I'm looking forward to next time.
