Seafari Adventures are Oban's 5* Visit Scotland marine wildlife tour operator. Based in Easdale, 16 miles south of Oban they have a fleet of powerful RIBs which are purpose designed and built to ensure you maximum viewing opportunities.

Tours depart throughout the day visiting the Gulf of Corryvreckan, home of the World's Third Largest Whirlpool. Porpoise, dolphins, whales and basking sharks feed in these food rich waters along with many seals and the occasional otter. There are deer on the islands and seabirds in the skies which are also home to both the white tailed sea eagle and golden eagle. This two hour nature spectacular is set amongst the many islands in the area. The scenery is spectacular with both woodlands and cliffs.

All Seafari boats are high speed Rigid Hulled Inflatable Boats purpose built for wildlife and nature watching. Boats are driven by one of our highly experienced skippers and crewed by a qualified wildlife guide.

Using our cabin RIBs we are able to offer whale watching tours and day tours to Iona, Staffa and the local Puffin colony. Private charters are also available.

We recently did the Corryvreckan Wildlife Tour. Glad we booked in advance as the trip was sold out when we arrived...it would be a long journey to get there to discover you can't go! We were lucky enough to to see seals, deer, sea eagles and porpoises. Thoroughly enjoyable couple of hours with Gillian as an informative and entertaining tour... More

We set off on the early morning excursion to the Corryvrekan Whirlpool on a high spring tide and what an absolutely amazing way to celebrate my 60th Birthday. Having been fully briefed on health and safety aspects and kitted out in waterproofs and life jackets there was nothing to fear in settling down to enjoy the rib experience to the... More

This was a brilliant day out. First off - Gillian provided a near perfect Health and Safety briefing before we even got anywhere near the boat and made sure all passengers were properly kitted and lifejackets were just right. Got on board and George delivered the safety on board bit. Well impressed! The trip itself was a bit of sheer... More

The afternoon wildlife tour on 09/10/16 was absolutely incredible! The whole event was so well organised and offered the opportunity to get out into the open and become surrounded by the amazing scenery that the islands have to offer. Everything was breath-taking. On top of this, our guide Tom and skipper George were fantastic! They are both really friendly, professional... More

Highly recommend the Whirlpool safari trip. We were very lucky with the tides to see the whirlpools at their best. Guides were informative and fun. Although we were not on the wildlife tour, a lot was pointed out to us anyway. Go prepared to get wet!
