Kate was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable and friendly. She knows the prime spots to look for Puffins and we saw quite a few pretty close. The minivan we travelled in was of a good size and there was space even when full to capacity....More

Had a wonderful day with Kate. The weather was against us that day, but still saw some amazing things and learned a lot from Kate’s vast store of knowledge of the area. Highly recommended.

We went out with Kate last week and had a very informative and enjoyable afternoon. I can only echo previous reviews, Kate is a great guide and knows her stuff. Without Kate, we would not have spotted the seals and we certainly would have missed...More
