Often the most exciting encounters are unpredictable though wildlife sightings vary according to season, tide and weather. Our skippers and crew will take you on a breathtaking, interactive tour of the coastline visiting remote places with the best chance of wildlife encounters.
SeaXplorer is a member of WISE and as such is an accredited wildlife safe operator. This means we care about the wildlife and how the boat integrates with existing habitats. We are careful about speed and angle of approach and ask that passengers avoid making sudden movements or noise when close to wildlife. We are there to watch – not to disturb. WHAT WILL WE SEE? Sea Birds
The west coast is a great place to watch birds of prey with sightings of golden eagles, buzzards, peregrines and the rare Sea Eagle can be see in their natural wild environment.
The different species of seabird that we see during our trips are far too numerous to list individually but include the Tern, Artic Tern, Cormorants, Shag, Guillemot, Razorbill, Kittiwake, Herring Gull, Gannet, Manx Shearwater, Storm Petrel, Oyster Catchers, Herons and Eider Ducks. SEALS
Seals sightings are plentiful and generally all year round. June to August is the best time to see new born common seal pups. Seals are naturally curious with an intelligence level similar to that of dogs. Young seals are very inquisitive and will often swim up close to the boat and we can get near to the rocky outcrops for a great photo opportunity of these beautiful creatures. PORPOISE
Porpoise (small dolphins) are wonderful to see and mesmerizing to watch as they dive under and close to the boat. OTHER
