    Tour Description:

    Wildlife Cruise from John OGroats
    Enjoy 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 route for the cruise depends on the tides and the weather. Our 2 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 cliffs teeming with many different 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.

    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.,

    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"
