Boat Trips from Oban

Discover the local nature and wildlife

Boat trips are an unbeatable way to explore Oban & the Isles and discover the wonderful wildlife that inhabits the region’s waters and coastline.

Oban is a world-class destination for spotting seals, whales, dolphins and porpoises plus minke whales, basking sharks and even the occasional orca.

There are a number of experienced operators offering wildlife-watching boat trips whilst there’s also the Corryvreckan Whirlpool, where tides and currents make it one of the largest permanent whirlpools on earth.

Record-breaking Giant Skate have been caught off Oban and there’s plenty of opportunities to join a game fishing trip.

Boat Trip Experiences

You don’t need to take a wildlife boat trip to spot whales and dolphins in Oban, Lorn & the Isles. Keep your eyes peeled when you’re on a ferry journey and you may well spot something!

Or, why not join one of the many trips available on our ferries, boats or yachts?

There are numerous boat operators that will take you out to the islands or our sea lochs which are also fabulous places for boat cruises.
