THE

SCOT­TISH Sea Life Sanc­tu­ary in Oban has teamed up with Sea Ex­plorer to of­fer cus­tomers a chance to ex­plore the amaz­ing nat­u­ral beauty of the area and its wildlife.

Run­ning daily from the sanc­tu­ary in Bar­cal­dine, the Sea Ex­plorer boat trips range from a half hour ‘Hop Around The Loch’ to a two-hour spec­tac­u­lar, tak­ing in the stun­ning Castle Stalker or Falls of Lora. Cen­tral to all the trips is a fo­cus on the beau­ti­ful, nat­u­ral sur­round­ings and wildlife that can be found there. Cus­tomers can ex­pect to see crea­tures such as seals, por­poise, ot­ters, ea­gles, deer, wild goats and a va­ri­ety of sea birds.

Guided by Sea Ex­plorer’s fully qual­i­fied - and by their own ad­mis­sion very amus­ing - skip­pers, cus­tomers will re­ceive a full in­ter­ac­tive tour with in­for­ma­tion on history, folk­lore and wildlife.

‘ We’re re­ally ex­cited to be work­ing with Sea Ex­plorer,’ said the Sanc­tu­ary’s gen­eral man­ager, Kathryn An­gel.

‘Con­ser­va­tion is a ma­jor part of what we do here at the Sanc­tu­ary. We hope that by see­ing marine wildlife in its nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­ment we can fur­ther ed­u­cate the public on the im­por­tance of pro­tect­ing these crea­tures.’

Full de­tails of the boat trips can be found on the Sanc­tu­ary web­site at vis­it­seal­ife.co.uk/ oban.
