Sailing times are influenced by weather, tides and sea conditions as well as passenger requests.

As a people focused company we therefore prefer to speak with our customer to ensure we offer the best possible service. With so many variables we believe it is not possible to offer the same degree of service through online booking however you can book online using the links below. We are happy to receive emails about our trips and aim to reply within 24 hours.

Officially Scotland is open for tourism from 15th July, however, the Scottish Government is insisting all boat operators adhere to the 2 metre social distancing rule rather than the reduced 1 metre rule. Unfortunately this is not economically viable for us. We are lobbying the government to change that rule but until that happens we will only be able to offer private charters for social bubbles of upto 12 passengers on a boat.

We are offering the 2 hour Corryvreckan Wildife Tour at a charter price of £425 or a shorter 1.25 hour Grey Dogs Wildlife Tour at a charter price of £220. Please contact our ticket office on 01852 300003 or oban@seafari.co.uk for more details or to book a charter.

We have left the booking system open in the hope that the government will allow us 1 metre very soon – if you are happy to book a standard scheduled tour and “hope for the best” then please do – If we need to cancel your tour due to low numbers or the 2m distancing rule we will, of course, offer you a full refund. 

We are sure our customers will understand that we need our tours to be economically viable. With guidelines regarding social distancing prone to change we ask that our customers approach their booking with an element of flexibility. We will try to call all our customers after booking to discuss the options. We reserve the right to cancel a tour if we are unable to make it economically viable – this would be our worse case scenario and full refunds would be issued if an alternative time was not able to be agreed. Thank you for your patience and support.

PLEASE NOTE – WE DO NOT ACCEPT ONLINE BOOKINGS FOR TOURS DEPARTING IN THE NEXT 12 HOURS – If you would like to book a tour within the next 12 hours please call us on 01852 300003 or email us at oban@seafari.co.uk
