Oban Snorkel & Wildlife Tour
Based from Oban, we offer a 1/2 day (4-6 hour) snorkelling and wildlife tour around the islands. This is a great tour around the Oban & Lorn coastline.
During this tour we start by visiting the local seal colony around Lismore Island, also looking for porpoises and seabirds along the way. Sometimes you can be lucky and have bottlenose or common dolphins, however they are more regularly seen on our offshore trips. Following some wildlife spotting along the Lismore shore, we make our way past castle Stalker for a quick picture and then over to the Morven peninsula.
The peninsula is a very remote part of the mainland with large cliffs, Atlantic oakwood forest and granite rock to the shoreline. This is a great area for spotting the white-tailed sea eagles and otters.
We stop the boat along this coast to have a marine-life snorkel safari with our marine biologist snorkel guides. They can show you some of the colourful marine life we have in our rich waters. This can include starfish, sea-urchins, kelp forests, fish such as pollack and wrasse, even small spotted catsharks or rays. At this time you can also have a paddle around on our sit-on-top kayaks, maybe even landing ashore to explore for a while.
From here we head straight for home and a hot shower at the marina, however we’ll give you a hot chocolate and a tasty treat to keep you going on the way home. It’s a lot to pack in to such a short trip but there’s always a variety of things to see and do!
