Wildlife Tour Guide

Wildlife Tour guide – 24th february 2011 to 15 November 2011 inclusive

Sea.fari Adventures are Scotland’s Foremost Sealife Adventure Boating Specialists. Easdale, is 16 miles south of Oban. We operate a fleet of modern RIBs. You will be responsible for
1.Acting as tour guide delivering talks to customers on the wildlife and natural history of the area A degree in a related field and/or the ability to speak a foreign language would be an advantage but not essential.
2.The collection and recording of cetacean and other wildlife sightings. Cetacean sightings are relayed to Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust and other scientific bodies.
3.Helping to maintain our leading position in the marine wildlife tourism market.
4. Any other duties deemed suitable.
The crew team has to cover both popular and less popular aspects within the business. We re-mphasise the importance of the primary responsibility of providing our customers with an exceptional and well managed wildlife experience. Excellent people and communication skills are essential. You must be capable of crewing our boats. Full instruction is given. A willingness to learn to adapt to differing situations on board and gaining the confidence of our skippers is essential. This is an outdoor job in conditions which can, at times, be quite demanding. Our trip numbers are governed by many variables including the weather so it is not possible to give an exact account of a normal week. For all posts low season is 5 days per week, high season up to 6 days per week
Full details of our tours see www.seafari.co.uk/oban

Wildlife tour guide with strong small boat handling skills
Low season Trips 3 days per week. Possibly ashore 2 days per week. We canot fix a schedule. We have a contract to provide boating services to Northern Lighthouse Board. You will act as crew during the majority of days when this work is undertaken You will require proven skills in boat (inflatable/small RIB) handling and be capable of landing engineers on rocks, lighthouses and beacons in remote locations. Sometimes great skill is required to ensure a safe landing. We have customer landing trips to other islands and you may be required to take either a large inflatable or small RIB to assist. You should be happy to work on and in the water. You will be required to assist with launching and recovery of boats and help with servicing and repairs. You will need to be practical and capable of using tools. We cannot control tides and repairs. A background in diving/surfing/canoeing is likely as you will need to go in the water to clear moorings, clean hulls, and harbour entrances. You will not necessarily have to dive, most of this work can be undertaken with a snorkel at low water. A drysuit would be a great advantage, Scottish seas are cold. You will also help with the community harbour.

Free single person accommodation in crew house (own room, common areas etc) plus wage
