Wildlife Cruise from John O'Groats

1. Wildlife Cruise from John O'Groats

Experience the wild and windy Scottish coastline. Listen to informative commentary from your guide throughout the cruise and enrich your knowledge of Scotland’s natural history. Cruise through the Pentland Firth past Duncansby Head lighthouse passing close to the sheer 200-feet high cliffs teeming with sea birds followed by a close-up view of the famous Stacks of Duncansby. Cross the inner sound of the Pentland Firth for a view of the uninhabited island of Stroma and the colonies of Atlantic Grey Seals. See the various cliffs and birds of Stroma. The types of birdlife seen will depend on the nesting season. For example Puffins will be seen in large numbers in June and July but in much smaller numbers in August. If you are lucky, catch a view of some whales.

What people are saying about Orkney

This is a great experience. Our trip took us round the island of Stroma where we saw seals, a variety of seabirds and remains of wrecks. The skipper was extremely knowledgeable and very skilled at manoeuvring the boat into small spaces.

It was good the only disappointing bit was you could hardly hear the guy due to the amount of your children when sat inside so we missed parts of the history given

Enjoyable boat trip around the Island of Stroma. Lots of seals, variety of birds and incredible rock formations.

It was great and managed to see the Duncasby Stacks even in a thick fog. Would highly recommend

Very good cruise. Well organised. The guys were excellent. Very knowledgable
