Wildlife Cruise for two, John O’Groats

  • Visit the most Northern point on Scotland
  • Cruises to see the Island of Stroma or Stacks of Duncansby
  • Visit the 'locals' including seals and puffins

From the Northern most point in Scotland, take a cruise round the coast and see the amazing wildlife that lives and visits this beautiful part of Scotland.

Upon arrival, you’ll be shown to the ferry and once everyone is on board you’ll venture out onto the waters! The particular route for the cruise will depend on the prevailing tide and weather conditions, however there are two main routes.

The first will take on a cruise through the Pentland Firth past Duncansby Head lighthouse. You’ll be passing close to sheer 200 ft high cliffs teeming with sea birds followed by a close up view of the famous Stacks of Duncansby. The second will 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.

Make sure to bring your camera as you’ll witness the amazing rugged cliff scenery as well as spotting the multitudes of wildlife like the arctic skuas, storm petrels, colonies of guillemots, puffins, razorbills, kittiwakes, atlantic grey seals and much more! Killer Whales visit the area and have been sighted on some of the cruises.

This is the perfect experience for an enjoyable day out and to see a new part of Scotland.
