Although we did not see whales, we had a very nice and informative trip. David and Kat are very experienced and kind and had a lot of interesting things to tell. The boat is completely equipped and seaworthy.

Minke whales normally arrive sometime between the middle of May and early June and leave in September. Dolphins, porpoise, seals and eagles are here all year round.

Hi, If you have a car allow a good 3 hours from Glasgow. If by train go to Oban and take a taxi or 418 west coast motors bus to clachan seil. There is a map and how to book details on our website. Hope to see you in August.
