“We had a WHALE of a time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014

Lots of Minke whales, harbour porpoises, common dolphins, seals and seabirds and plankton - what more could you ask for. The team on board made it a very informative and interesting day. Our second trip with Sea Life Surveys and hopefully we will be back on board next time we are on Mull.

“Fantastic boat trip with the most helpful, friendly and informative staff you could hope for”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

Great trip out to see various sea birds ,golden eagles,sea eagles ,seals, jelly fish. We chased some dolphins but they gave us the slip. Even for days after our trip the staff were happy to entertain and teach our son with all sorts of marine life. Highly recommend this company

“Minke Magic!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

We had a wonderful day long cruise with the fabulous crew at sea life surveys. The crew were very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. They were able to spend a lot of time educating the passengers about not only the wildlife that we could see but also about the biology and conservation of the animals and the ocean, as a zoologist myself I found this to be an excellent form of science communication. We were able to spot eagles, seals, many species of sea birds and luckily three minke whales, it was hard to tell who was more excited at seeing the whales breach, us passengers or the crew. Would highly recommend a cruise of any length with SLS and we will definitely be back again this summer.

“Great time, informative”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

the team were great, they were really quick to spot things and get everyone looking.

Also useful on advising on simple things like buying binoculars for such future tours.

Would recommend anyone to wear warm clothes and get a good spot up top

happy spotting

“Perfect Day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

Arrived at the last minute to see if I could book a trip. I was very fortunate to go out with the guys and six others. The information on the day was endless, coffee and biscuits were provided, a warm welcome from all the staff. This was a fabulous way to see the coastline. thank you very much
