Description:

Seafari Adventures are Oban's 5* Visit Scotland marine wildlife tour...

Seafari Adventures are Oban's 5* Visit Scotland marine wildlife tour operator. Based in Easdale, 16 miles south of Oban they have a fleet of powerful RIBs which are purpose designed and built to ensure you maximum viewing opportunities.

Tours depart throughout the day visiting the Gulf of Corryvreckan, home of the World's Third Largest Whirlpool. Porpoise, dolphins, whales and basking sharks feed in these food rich waters along with many seals and the occasional otter. There are deer on the islands and seabirds in the skies which are also home to both the white tailed sea eagle and golden eagle. This two hour nature spectacular is set amongst the many islands in the area. The scenery is spectacular with both woodlands and cliffs.

All Seafari boats are high speed Rigid Hulled Inflatable Boats purpose built for wildlife and nature watching. Boats are driven by one of our highly experienced skippers and crewed by a qualified wildlife guide.

Using our cabin RIBs we are able to offer whale watching tours and day tours to Iona, Staffa and the local Puffin colony. Private charters are also available.

Plymouth to Easdale, not easy but worth it for the wildlife trip this morning with Steve and Tom (think I've got the names right). No rain as we toured around, that was a good start. I'm happy with the view and the boat but red deer, porpoise and white tailed sea eagle today made it extra special. The lemon biscuits... More

We had a brilliant 2 hr boat trip and managed to see lots of wildlife. The views were stunning, a great way to see the coast from a different perspect. The guide was very informative and appealed to adults and children. My son even held a jelly fish, the highlight for him by far.

This had been on my "to do" list for a long time and I eventually got to do it on my birthday yesterday! Fantastic trip topped off by a stunning sunset, the seafari team (Simon & Tom) were great but mother nature was at her best for us!! 😀

We booked the Seafari a day in advance for the 2 pm boat ride. We were handed over our overalls well in time and started the tour. Despite the overalls and being summer time, it was fairly chilly. It was however a good ride on a good sunny day. We were able to spot some wildlife - Golden eagle nest,... More

Our family of four enjoyed our 2 hour wildlife tour in August, where we saw seals, porpoises and eagles during our tour. After having our tour cancelled because of bad weather, we were very impressed with the company working with us to reschedule another tour for the next day.

We decided to celebrate our 47th wedding anniversary this year by taking the Corryvreckan Wildlife trip with Seafaris from Ellanabeich. It was a good choice! We had an exhilarating couple of hours on the sea around several of the inshore islands in the Firth of Lorne. We saw plenty of seals, a few gannets, kittiwakes and even a sea eagle... More
