What to expect

Have you ever wondered why puffins are called the 'clowns of the sea'? Well, this is your chance to find out why.

On this tour, you'll take to the seas and sail around Engey, Akurey or Lundey island to see puffins in their natural habitat. Unfortunately, you won't be able to go onto the islands but you'll get a great view of the nesting birds and many other species, like eider ducks, arctic terns, guillemots and cormorants, and maybe even hear their calls. The expert crew will also be able to tell you all about these magestic birds and the beautiful surroundings while you soak up the views.
