WSKSC Our Price Match Promise


Swim with grey, common and harbour seals off the Scottish coast with this exciting and interactive wildlife excursion. Perfect for beginners, start in Oban, sail off on a boat with knowledgeable experts, wetsuits and snorkelling gear and head to a large seal colony. Seals are so friendly and typically about 10 or 20 seals surround the boat upon arrival! Once everyone gets in the water, the seals zoom around ready to play. The water is only a few metres deep and is some of the clearest in Scotland, so there's no need for heavy dive gear. This is an incredible opportunity to get up-close to these amiable creatures and there is even more splendid wildlife to spot on the journey there and back, including dolphins, sharks, eagles and red deer.

  • Swim with friendly seals on the Scottish coast
