We wanted to do this because my daughter and I haven't seen Gannets in about 5 years. Being on a tractor was really fun. Collin (our driver/guide) stopped occasionally to inform us about the layers, ancient tectonic plates, mini waterfalls that happen sometimes etc. We...More
Fantastic afternoon with Murray at the helm of the tractor. Safe but fun trip for all ages. The hike up to the colony steep but worthwhile. The information snippets along the way interesting, even to a local.
Brother in-law said do this trip! I’m not one for lots of people, (180 on our trip) however you can keep to yourself or engage those around.
Interesting scenery and up close to the gannets makes it a great trip.

Unhesitatingly and whole-heartedly recommended for everyone.
Outstanding value-for-money. Great experience...More

Hi - thanks for your question. The walk to the top colony is optional - we have a colony of gannets located on the beach so you don't miss out on seeing the birds if you can't or don't wish to do the walk. The tractors wait at the end of the beach, which is where the walk starts, and depart from the same place (we go out and return via the same beach route). The rest shelter is approx 5mins walk from the beach and this is where a lot of people wait, as there are toilets, picnic tables and shady trees there. Hope this helps! Regards.
