We've toured many islands and taken many boat trips but this one today was the best one we have done The boat is great with plenty of space inside and out and a top deck for the braver sea goer. (Its windy and get cold but it's worth it). When it gets cold you can move inside and still get... More

The museum is an excellent place for a good day out and to find out about Shetland. There are lot of things for children to do, a restaurant for coffee and cake and a good gallery for local art.

Jonathan took a group of us on a tour, and explained before leaving that due to the wind direction and strength he would recommend that we did not go too far to the south. This was good advice as we could feel the swell as he guided us round the south-end of Lerwick. The stories and background that he gave... More

We decided to book a Seabirds and Seals trip in advance as we were in Shetland in the busy month of June. We embarked knowing that this is a highly praised operation and were not disappointed; the crew was terrific - good communicators and knowledgable - and the submarine camera with images on a big screen was an excellent way...

My wife and I took a transatlantic cruise with Princess Cruises and one of the ports was Lerwick, Scotland. We had booked the Seabirds and Seals Day Tour in advance, based on the reviews I've read on Tripadvisor. Needless to say, We were very pleasantly surprised. The tour was great. We were lucky enough to catch a really nice day... More

My boyfriend and I were on a very tight schedule (only a few hours on Shetland), so this sea tour was the perfect opportunity to give us a taste of the remote archipelago. I should specify, first of all, that I have never seen seals so close and so friendly or ridden a boat providing underwater footage... and I should... More

This excursion was recommended by our hotel staff and it was so fantastic. A ship with two skippers and three hours on the water looking at sea birds, sea life (seals and sea otters) and water life. The skippers were knowledgable and kind providing a coffee/tea break mid sail. We highly recommend you take this in.

High quality marine and seabird tour, with knowledgable skipper and guide. The highlight was a close sighting of a female Minkie whale on the south coast of Bressay. Highly recommended.

We took the tour in the afternoon as it was fully book in the morning. Just a few distance from the port we already saw seals. The 2 staffs are friendly and helpful, and very knowledgeable about the marine life. And the views and birds are amazing. They even stop for fishing and caught a fish.They also stop for tea... More
