The seals were scarce the day we went out but the trip was still very enjoyable. Lots of stories/legends and information on the local area. A great trip.

Most enjoyable two hour cruise wildlife spotting and enjoying the scenery which is marvellous. Informative and friendly guide. Not a “thrill” ride but with everyone’s consent a little bit of excitement at the end

Despite the lack of wildlife on the 2hour morning trip Jill provided much useful/informative information during its duration. I was also pleased to note that full attention was given to safety issues and appropriate clothing.

Although I thought this trip wasn't terrible I would suggest only doing the two hour trip and not booking in advance. The one hour was just a small circle around the loch and the commentator was very strained on what to talk about for most...More

Yes I think it would. As long as they can get in and out of the boat. But it's not too difficult. We got their number from the Facebook page.

I'm not sure sorry but a phone call to glencoe activities who you book with should be able to help? Or you could try booking online to see if those dates were available?
