I went on this trip with my family and we all had a great time. Amazing to see all the natural wildlife, seals, deer, eagles, gannets, zebras, in their natural beautiful habitat, in stunningly wild and atmospheric place. Very informative and friendly hosts George and Rory, and ideal way to see a lot of Scotland from unusual vantage points. I... More

The day we went the weather was overcast with periods of light rain and the water was a bit choppy. We had a great time and enjoyed the whole trip. There were three boat loads of people who went with us. The boats are very fast and the boats are stopped a couple of times for staff to provide some... More

We did the two hour Corryvreckan whirlpool wildlife trip. The trip is in a RIB speedboat which holds 12 people. On arrival, you are issued with waterproofs and life jacket. Once kitted out we got onto the boat and set off with Steve and Rory as our guides. We were lucky enough to see two types of seals, porpoises, a... More

Linda - thank you so much for this review - we are so pleased you enjoyed your time with us. We often find that when the tide isn't running it's better for porpoise spotting. Hopefully you can head back to see us for the Whirlpool Special at some point ! More

We typically enjoy a wee boat trip and the seafari adventure came recommended from a local friend. It did not disappoint. It's a 2 hour trip in a speed boat which was extremely fun. We saw seals, and goats, 2 types of deer, birds of prey, and porpoises! The tour guides were very friendly and it was great to see... More

As a family we have been out with Seafari twice before, on their wildlife trips and they have always been a highlight of our holidays. This time we were lucky enough to experience the 'Whirlpool special', visiting the Corryvreckan whirlpool at it's most lively. I had thought that I would miss out on the trip, as we have a dog,...

Had a great trip out on the open RIB, we were lucky enough to see a big pod of dolphins playing and leaping. Also saw common seals, with a few young pups, and feral goats, fallow dear and quiteca close encounter with a sea eagle - fabulous. As the tides were wrong the actual whirlpool was not that impressive but... More

Thank you so much Susie for this review - and you got dolphins as well ! We often find that when the tide isn't running the cetaceans are more visible so, no whirlpools, but you got dolphins ! More

Thank you to Jess and the team at Seafari for a totally awesome adventure. How Jess managed to coax a reluctant 7 year old out of the car in the pouring rain and persuade her with shear enthusiasm and perfectly pitched encouragement, to get her into waterproof gear and out on the boat....was nothing short of miraculous. And then to... More
