  • Wildlife Cruise from John O'Groats

    1. Wildlife Cruise from John O'Groats

    Experience the wild and windy Scottish coastline. Listen to informative commentary from your guide throughout the cruise and enrich your knowledge of Scotland’s natural history. Cruise through the Pentland Firth past Duncansby Head lighthouse passing close to the sheer 200-feet high cliffs teeming with sea birds followed by a close-up view of the famous Stacks of Duncansby. Cross the inner sound of the Pentland Firth for a view of the uninhabited island of Stroma and the colonies of Atlantic Grey Seals. See the various cliffs and birds of Stroma. The types of birdlife seen will depend on the nesting season. For example Puffins will be seen in large numbers in June and July but in much smaller numbers in August. If you are lucky, catch a view of some whales.

    It was good the only disappointing bit was you could hardly hear the guy due to the amount of your children when sat inside so we missed parts of the history given

What people are saying about John o' Groats

Visit was limited in distance to Dunnets Head but we saw good selection of bird life. Dolphins and whales a no show but one disconsolate seal was the sole mammal on offer.

Enjoyable boat trip around the Island of Stroma. Lots of seals, variety of birds and incredible rock formations.

It was great and managed to see the Duncasby Stacks even in a thick fog. Would highly recommend

Very good cruise. Well organised. The guys were excellent. Very knowledgable
