What you'll do

We run a full day snorkelling & wildlife adventure from Oban (although we can also pick up from Tobermory on the Isle of Mull). We head to offshore islands away from the mainland where the water is clear and full of life. The trip to each location can be between 1-2 hours but we have a fast and safe cabin boat to take you there. Once at the location we'll kit up with thick wetsuits to keep warm and explore the amazing kelp forest habitat, seeing fish, starfish, urchins, crabs, nudibranchs (cute sea slugs!), jellyfish (non-stinging) and hopefully some seals too. After our snorkel, we'll warm up back aboard with a hot drink and flapjack then motor back. During the trip our we have the chances to see porpoises, dolphins, whales, sharks, seabirds & eagles. Of course it's wildlife so what we see on any given day is very variable!

Where you'll be

We'll visit offshore islands that where it's likely you'll be the only people there. They require a lot of knowledge of the tides, ocean and weather of the area to reach. The islands are remote and many have white shell sand beaches that can look very like the Caribbean!

Outdoor activities carry risks, and you may be exposed to dangerous situations as part of this experience. Make sure you can participate safely given your abilities and the conditions (such as location, weather, and equipment).
