Customer Google Review

As part of a Shetlands Wildlife three day tour, we had the pleasure of a 3 hour trip with Seabirds-and-Seals, accompanied by our guide and the operators. We headed out around Bressay to the Isle of Noss, where tens of thousands of gannets and other birds had arrived to breed. Our boat moved slowly and expertly in and around the cliffs and caves, bringing us within feet of the birds. Nothing was rushed, it was all about the birds and giving you myriad opportunities to photograph and learn about them. We spotted a few seals along the way. A young client was given an opportunity to pilot the boat. A breathtaking trip in an amazing setting, we enjoyed the boat and the owners, and appreciated their expertise. Highly recommended”
