Kayaking with Seals in Oban, Scotland
Go kayaking off the Scottish coast on an interactive wildlife tour. Set off from Oban and join the experts on board who will impart their vast knowledge of Scotland's wildlife during the boat trip to the seal colony. During the journey take the chance to see whales, dolphins, sharks and white-tailed eagles, soak up the stunning scenery and make a stop at the picturesque coastal village of Tobermory on the Isle of Mull. Reach the stunning clear waters of the Herbidean lagoon and don your wetsuit as you kayak amongst the local seal colony, observing these extremely friendly creatures in their beautiful natural surroundings. Climb back on board for the journey back to dry land, hopefully taking photographs and wonderful memories home with you.
