2 magical hours! Actually we had longer because it all got very exciting and we stayed out longer than scheduled. We had a great guide and skipper, both full of information and enthusiasm. The outer clothing they supplied was just right for the conditions. We saw grey and common seals, shags, buzzards, feral goats, 2 adult sea eagles and their... More

30th October wildlife tour. The tour left 15 mins late but that's probably because the previous tour got more than they paid for. We certainly did - 2hrs 15mins ! Great ! Wonderful sittings; red and fallow dear, wild goats, common and grey seals, an otter and to cap it all two close encounters with white tailed eagles. We also... More

Had a bad week weather wise but the two hour wildlife trip was the best part of the holiday! We were in the covered boat which was good on a cooler day. We saw golden eagle, sea eagle, seals, wild goats, deer/stags, heron and an otter so felt very lucky. Simon the skipper and Caroline the guide were absolutely fantastic.... More

Went on the 2 hour nature / Corryvreckan tour which ended up over 2.5 hours, saw loads; deer / common seal / grey seal / otter / sea eagle and lots of birds ! Whirlpool didn't perform but that will only encourage me to return. Went in the covered boat which was good as a bit chilly outside. Would imagine... More

We went on the Corryvreckan Wildlife Trip at the end of October 2014. We had good weather, and Simon and Carolyn were great hosts. All wildlife is unpredictable, but we were lucky to see, Seals, Deer, Goats, Golden Eagle, Sea Eagle, Heron and other sea birds. You could visit Scotland for years and not see all these. The trip into... More

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
