Spot Wildlife


Scottish Coastline – hundreds of miles with marine wildlife


The waters around Scotland have some of the best marine wildlife in Europe. You have the chance to see dolphins, porpoises, whales, otters, basking sharks and last not least seals. On all our trips we make everyone in the group aware of responsible access and how to act when wildlife is nearby.


Isle of Skye

Around the Isle of Skye you will find a lot of marine wildlife. The largest concentration is between Raasay and Sleat. Animals you are most likely to see are harbour seals, porpoises, otters and eagles. You may encounter whales, basking sharks or dolphins. Consider yourself lucky if you do.

Arisaig is a fantastic area to spot wildlife. The archepilago near the village of Arisaig is home to many harbour seals and some otters. The seals in the area are more used to sea kayaks and will stay on the rocks and get sometimes fairly close to the sea kayaks. You still have to keep a respectful distance to the wild animals though.
