Welcome aboard

The highlight of your Shetland holiday – our famous Noss boat trip to the seabird and seal colonies – PLUS underwater viewing on our 3-hour cruises.

‘It is by far the best tour that I’ve done ever anywhere, and it’s not just for birdwatchers or science-minded folk.’

Our wildlife adventure cruises around Noss National Nature Reserve and Bressay depart seven days a week from Victoria Pier Slipway, Lerwick, at 5:15am, 10:15am and 2:15pm – we ask passengers booked on each trip to arrive 15 minutes prior to departure, to allow us to welcome you onboard ‘Seabird’ and to¬†go over safety briefing etc.

  • Trip Duration: 05:15am Trip(2 hours) & 10:15am & 2:15pm Trip(3hours)
  • Season: April – October and at other times by arrangement, subject to weather, demand and annual overhaul.
  • In 2001 Seabirds-and-Seals founder Dr Jonathan Wills pioneered underwater wildlife viewing in The Shetland Sea, using video cameras and a remotely controlled mini-submarine, or ROV. This opened up to visitors a rich, fascinating and previously little known part of the islands.
  • Seabirds-and-Seals offers you the best guides, the best boat, the best views and the best value.
