Meet common, harbour and grey seals on this exciting and interactive wildlife tour off the Scottish coast and into the Hebrides. Set off from Oban and visit a large seal colony, where typically between 10 and 20 seals approach and swim around the boat - they are extremely friendly creatures! Take a dingy to explore unpolluted islands with white sand and soak in stunning scenery, where on a clear day it's possible to see Skye, the Outer Hebrides, Mull and the Small Isles. There are experts on board to entertain you with their vast knowledge, lots of brilliant photo opportunities and so much wildlife to spot, including eagles, red deer, dolphins and sharks, you can expect an unforgettable day exploring UK sea life!
