The seals were scarce the day we went out but the trip was still very enjoyable. Lots of stories/legends and information on the local area. A great trip.

Most enjoyable two hour cruise wildlife spotting and enjoying the scenery which is marvellous. Informative and friendly guide. Not a “thrill” ride but with everyone’s consent a little bit of excitement at the end

Yes I think it would. As long as they can get in and out of the boat. But it's not too difficult. We got their number from the Facebook page.

I'm not sure sorry but a phone call to glencoe activities who you book with should be able to help? Or you could try booking online to see if those dates were available?
