    Tour Description:

    Wildlife Cruise from John OGroatsEnjoy one of our spectacular 90 minute afternoon cruises this summer. Pass rugged cliff scenery and see Arctic Skuas, Storm Petrels, colonies of Guillemots, Puffins, Razorbills, Kittiwakes, Atlantic Grey Seals and much more!

    The particular route for the cruise will depend on the prevailing tide and weather conditions, however the two main routes are:

    1) Leave John O'Groats Harbour and cruise through the Pentland Firth past Duncansby Head lighthouse passing close to sheer 200 ft high clifs teeming with sea birds followed by a close up view of the famous Stacks of Duncansby.

    2) Leave John O'Groats Harbour and Cross the inner sound of the Pentland Firth for a close up view of the uninhabited Island of Stroma and colonies of Atlantic Grey Seals. View the various cliffs and birds of Stroma.

    Birdlife can be seen on all our cruises however some have distinct breeding cycles and after their particular nesting season will travel far out to sea. For example Puffins will be seen in large numbers in June and July but in much smaller numbers in August.

    You may be lucky enough to see some killer whales. Plenty sightings over the last few years.


    It really is a great thrill for all the family to get this close to Wildlife in their natural environment!

    "I had a fantastic time through Scotland Tours, I would recommend the company to others. Everything was great, the highlight had to be the boat ride on loch Ness. The guide & service was well organised"
