Customer Google Review

During our stay in Shetland we took 2 boat trips out from Lerwick harbour to the seabird cliffs at the 'Noss National Nature Reserve' with this company and both trips were excellent. We had superb close up views of gannets, auks, fulmar, shags and kittiwakes which were nesting in the caves, rock recesses and narrow ledges on the high cliffs. If you are a photographer and the sea state is calm enough then Brian the boat owner will take you as close to the rocks as possible within safety limits which will allow ample opportunities for close up shots of the birds. Marie, Brian's partner, will look after your welfare on board and will also deliver an excellent commentary on the wildlife you will see during the boat trip. The boat itself is a twin hulled catamaran and extremely stable and seaworthy. There is a basic toilet on board and you will be offered tea & biscuits! Rest assured that you will be in safe hands during your boat trip. Enjoy the amazing wildlife spectacle!”
