Great trip that lived up to expectations with seals and pups, deer, dolphins, porpoises and mike whales, a multitude of seabirds including puffins and the amazing white-tailed sea eagles. The knowledge of the two guides Georgia and David was excellent.

Fantastic trip. David and Jean are very passionate about marine conservation. We saw an adult sea eagle ( flying door), porpoises, seals and minke whales. Fantastic trip and really shows why we need to protect our marine environment

The tour was really cool and the team was awesome! You could see that they really care for marine animals and they told us a lot of interesting things! We even were lucky enough to spot a minke whale! It was really exciting :-)

Hi You would be better contacting them directly via their website. Google "sealife adventures seil" The trips are great, highly recommended.

Minke whales normally arrive sometime between the middle of May and early June and leave in September. Dolphins, porpoise, seals and eagles are here all year round.

Hi, If you have a car allow a good 3 hours from Glasgow. If by train go to Oban and take a taxi or 418 west coast motors bus to clachan seil. There is a map and how to book details on our website. Hope to see you in August.
