Seabirds-and-Seals

Boat Tour

Sundside, Bressay, Shetland, ZE2 9ER

    Shetland's award-winning wildlife adventure cruises around Noss National Nature Reserve and Bressay depart seven days a week from Victoria Pier Slipway in Lerwick.

    Visit some of Britain's best bird cliffs aboard Shetland's top wildlife tour boat, Dunter III.

    Sail with the expert local guides to meet birds and seals at amazingly close range. Marvel at the stupendous cliffs, stacks, coves and caves.

    Every cruise includes underwater viewing with remotely-controlled video cameras, to reveal the teeming sea-life in the caves and kelp forests below the waves. See the entire food chain from tiny plankton to gannets and grey seals.

    You'll be amazed how close you can get to the 20,000 gannets, 30,000 guillemots and hundreds of puffins, razor bills, black guillemots, kittiwakes, shags and skuas, not to mention the breathtaking cliffs, caves and stacks. Most days you can get very close to seals and sometimes there are porpoises or whales. Every trip is different and you never know what you might see!

    The heated salon boasts panoramic views but the best views are from the open deck and the observation platform upstairs, so please wear warm clothing. There are even binoculars to borrow in case you forget to take your own.

    Wheelchair users are welcome as the main deck and toilet compartment on the Dunter III are accessible for wheelchair users.
