Half Day Safari

A more condensed but no less memorable version of our full day safari. Take a half day tour in our comfortable 7 seat minibus. Get out occasionally and stretch your legs, explore the highlights of the natural and cultural history of the south east of the island, while all the time keeping an eye out for those special wildlife encounters.

Event Details

The Highlights

Seal Bay – as the name suggests, a fantastic opportunity to see common seals up close as they haul up on the rocks for a snooze.

Kildalton Cross – 8th century Celtic High Cross… a must-see and a chance to learn a bit more about those who left their mark on Islay.

Celtic rainforest – this is a very special habitat, a peaceful place, and a time to look at nature, big and small. Learn a bit about the management of this magical environment.

Claggain Bay – a beautiful raised beach with spectacular views and a popular spot for a few of our seabird species. Ideal for a bite to eat.
