Hang on to your sunglasses!
Jun 2021 • Couples
We loved it all. The crew were first class, a good welcome, careful briefing, and clear explanations of all the sights we saw. I obviously didn’t hear them warn me about the sunglasses perched on my forehead. As the engines thrust us forward….whoosh - off they went into the Atlantic!
Well worth the money.

Jun 2021
We thoroughly enjoyed our Corryvreckan Wildlife Tour in the company of guide Roy and skipper Russ; both were knowledgeable and, helpful and fun. We had a lovely warm, calm day and saw porpoises, seals, red and fallow deer and a pair of white tailed sea eagles sitting by their nest and chick. We managed to catch a few turns in the whirlpools too. Everything was well organised and the office staff were really helpful and friendly too!

You’ve got to do it!

Absolutely fabulous trip with Steve and Roy today. The Corryvreckan was incredible, so majestic and powerful. We saw two white tailed eagles (and a chick), roe and fallow deer, shags, wild goats and ospreys.
Both Steve and Roy had a wealth of knowledge to share and made the trip fascinating. Steve’s skilful handling of the rib through the Corryvreckan was very impressive and I felt very safe.
A fantastic treat for my 60th birthday, just the two of us and our dog Dudley. Thank you so much Seafari for a great trip! We will be back.

An incredible day thank you. Thanks to the crew Russ and Steve and Carolyn at the office for making this happen. And also looking after Elsi:)

The knowledge that both Russ and Steve have was amazing, learnt so much about the area, the tides, whirlpools etc...too good.

Will be back there again, hope for that sunny weather we had.
