Waving goodbye to Oban.

Oban harbour is a busy place. MV Isle of Cumbrae was heading out to Lismore while...

MV Lord of the Isles was making her way in from Mull.

The harbour has a very narrow entrance and the basic rule is that sea kayaks keep right out of the way.

The ferries make an announcement on channel 16 just before they enter the narrows...

...which gives just enough time to position yourself ready to surf their bow waves!
