Rich marine biodiversity and breathtaking Gairloch landscapes
Passionate about the secrets of nature, Richard Holmes transmits his naturalistic knowledge with enthusiasm. Over the sea, he has acquired the art of making passengers discover the wealth of the underwater world that hides in the depths of the loch, accessible only a few meters away.
Unique to Gairloch, ‘Sealife’ is the only glass-bottomed cruise ship to combine seabed discovery while enjoying the breathtaking scenery and wildlife of Gairloch Bay. Situated in the beautiful mountains of North West Scotland, Gairloch is nestled at the water’s edge, between golden sands, magnificent forests and towering mountains.
Discovery of the seabed warm and dry
The perfectly crystalline water thanks to the presence of Maërls benches, combined with the ingenious device of underwater vision placed in the center of the cockpit, allows a remarkable observation of the seabed.
The circuit is well honed. Richard Holmes navigates with ease between the different ecosystems: algae fields, piles of rocks, sediment bottoms, mudflats and observes their occupants: crabs, marine worms, sea urchins, oysters, starfish, sponges, cod or other scallops… A feast for the eyes!
Accessible to all, the activity allows you to discover, warm and dry, the seabed of Loch Gairloch.
