Experience a new world
Young and not so young get a kick out of this trip! It's simply fascinating - even seeing seaweed as a natural moving forest is something extraordinary, and there are always surprises.
It all there - you just have to spot it...
Where we go, what we see, what you'll remember
Wester Ross has an incredible natural beauty, and we are lucky to have so many wonderful, natural things to see. It also has clear water, and you'll be amazed at how much you can see, even in water over 2 meters deep.
Typical sightings include Velvet, Shore, Spider and Hermit Crabs, Fish, including flounder, juvenile pollock who use the weed as a nursery, gurnard and wrasse. There are starfish, anenomes, sea slugs (Nudebranch) sponges and jellyfish.
Obviously the things you see change throughout the year, but whenever you come, you will see something interesting on every trip.
There are animals above the water too, seabirds, seals and harbour porpoises regular sightings - with occasional spots of more exotic species.
