Comprising of over 100 islands big and small, a boat charter or cruise is a great way to explore Shetland and experience some truly amazing brushes with the rich wildlife in the region.

There are various wildlife cruises to choose from which will let you see at close quarters the incredible numbers and variety of seabirds that use the islands' steep cliff faces to roost and nest including puffins, kittiwakes, fulmars, razorbills and guillemots.

In Shetland’s pristine coastal waters you'll also be able to see a rich and diverse wildlife, such as harbour porpoises, schools of dolphins and minke whales. With a bit of luck, you might even see orcas chasing seals close inshore.
