Seal Watching for Two in Oban, Scotland
Brace yourselves for a close encounter with common, grey and harbour seals on this interactive and informative wildlife tour of the Scottish coast and into the Hebrides for two. Set sail from Oban and visit a large seal colony, where typically between 10 and 20 extremely friendly seals approach and swim around the boat. With the help of a dingy, explore nearby unpolluted, white sand islands with stunning scenery, where on a clear day it's possible to see the Small Isles, Skye, Mull and the Outer Hebrides. With knowledgeable experts on board to entertain you with fun facts and lots of impressive photo opportunities of the wildlife you are likely to spot (including sharks, eagles, dolphins and red deer), this is an unforgettable, full day exploring UK sea life!
