  • Description

    Join RV COAST Explorer on a 3hr Coastal Nature Trip around Arran's coastline to search for seabirds and dorsal fins, and to learn more about our underwater habitat and Arran's unique coastline.


    Your skipper will make a decision on the day of the exact route, depending on weather and tidal conditions and any recent cetacean (whale & dolphin) sightings.


    Due to the duration of this trip, we do not recommend it for children under 8 years old, however, we are happy to discuss individual requirements.

    Please meet us at the Marine Information Point at Lamlash Pier at the start time of the activity. Please note, there are no car parking facilities here, but parking is available nearby opposite the PHT pub, or down the green at the COAST Discovery Centre.
