We had a great trip on the boat, and saw a large family of dolphins for about 20 minutes. The crew were informative and the rest of the trip went well too.

Captain Steve and guide Ennis were excellent and very knowledgeable about the local area. We saw several seals and a few porpoises in the waters. The local village of Easdale was superb to explore for the rest of the day, we even found the place for the World Stone Skimming competition. Well worth a day out!

We went last week as a holiday highlight. Two attempts to book on- Oban information centre told us to just go down to Easdale and get on but no chance. Always book first and in advance. Our wait paid off though as the day was clear and we could see for miles. One adult and two kids aged 10 and... More

After getting over the feeling of being a minion in a life jacket :-) great boat trip guided by Simon and Paddy. Guided like it was the first time for them. Had hoped to see dolphins/ whales but cant have everything. Well worth the single track road. Must get back when Corryvreckan in full flow and an evening trip. Waiting... More

My 8 year old daughter and I went on the Corryvreckan Wildlife trip and thoroughly enjoyed it. The crew were very knowledgeable and helpful, and took us to see some fascinating wildlife, such as seals, deer, guillemots and a sea eagle's nest, and we also caught glimpses of porpoises and the first minke whale of the season. The whirlpool was... More

Thank you so much for this great review - yes, the Whirlpool area is tidal based so sometimes it's very active and sometimes you can float a lilo across the gulf ! If our passengers let us know if they would like to see the whirlpool during its active phase we ask that they us know and we can advise... More

Prepare to be thrilled! We took the wild-life safari in the morning and took the photographs here. Seals, deer, cormorants, eagles, porpoises - the lot! Great guidance from George and steering craft from Simon as well. On this trip, the Safari-issued waterproofs will keep you dry and the ride is fairly civilised. The seats are not he most comfortable ever,... More
