Enjoy a week of wildlife safaris around the coastline of this 'wee' Scottish isle. As well as rock pooling, seal watching and crabbing, we will also spend time on the beach playing games and relaxing. Each evening we will have a fun activity for the children, including lantern making, stargazing and a campfire. Fingers crossed, there's also the chance we might see a dolphin if we are really lucky on our boat trip around the island.This break runs concurrently with our Snorkelling, Sand and Sailing week, enabling families who have children who want to go on different breaks to come away together.

Jack Lucas is a knowledgeable marine biologist having conducted marine mammal research in four countries, and with a degree in the subject. He is also a qualified Passive Acoustic Monitoring operator and Marine Mammal Observer. He has a passion for birds and marine orgnanisms, and works on Cumbrae as an FSC tutor for much of the year so knows the local sites well.
