Saw seals and sea eagles! When we visited last year we saw no seals on the seal trip 🙁 But we were willing to give it another go this time round! And happily we saw seals and two sea eagles on our trip. We also took a chance in leaving booking the one hour trip the day before and managed to get a booking for two adults, one teenager and two dogs. Worth the trip, thank you.

A real fun and informative sail We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 hour sail from Oban with Oban Sea Tours. My grandchildren loved the binoculars they could borrow. Staff were young, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and well informed about the local area and wildlife. Boat is very comfortable although it may be an idea for the future to sell soft drinks on board Possibly the best boat trip in the area. Definitely recommend this trip

Beautiful 2 hour cruise We really enjoyed the 2 hour cruise around Kerrera and seeing the seals. A must if you are in the Oban area. We booked in advance but the weather was perfect.

Serene Simplicity What a fantastic experience. Obviously it was helped by the rather unseasonable sunshine the west coast of Scotland had that day but wow...booked in advance and was glad we had as they were booked up for the rest of the week. Myself, wife and two girls climbed aboard and were seated on deck chairs....sounds wrong but my word it was so right and what a fantastic way to spend 2 hours cruising around Kerrera. The historical narration was just enough to keep the interest and the skippering second to none...what an experience would definitely recommend.

Great little tour We did the two hours tour, we saw salmon farms, seals and ruins of castles. The surroundings are absolutely gorgeous, they provide very good explanations, individual chairs, blankets and binoculos. A very nice little tour.

Go for as long as you can! Absolutely brilliant little tour around the bay to see salmon farms, seals and the sights. My only regret is that we didn't go for longer and the fishing trip would be top of my list next time. Super little boat with individual chairs set out, binoculars, and blankets - absolutely loved it and would highly recommend.

Fish for everyone Great trip well worth the money. The staff are great and know where the fish are. Had a trip with people who had never fished before and we all caught several good mackerel. Great scenery as well.

Well worth the money We enjoyed the 1 hour seal trip over the weekend and it was well worth every penny. The crew were extremely welcoming and friendly and ensured you stayed warm (on the chilly day that it was!) by giving us blankets. The tour was informative providing us with info about the landmarks/areas we passed, and the highlight was seeing the seals in their natural habitat, which was lovely.
