On the wildlife cruise part of your tour we go in search of albatross, seals, penguins and many other species. We usually see between 12 and 18 species of animal. You will be given a wildlife sheet before you leave us so you can remember all ofthe animals youve seen. We aim to get close and low with the animals. The vessel is fast, comfortable and a custom build. There is a bathroom onboard and a heated cabin. Your free time in Portobello can be spent however you like. By hiring an electric bicycle to explore the area more fully, a museum visit, shopping in the local village or by strolling and picnicking. You have plenty of time to enjoy it.

Great wildlife cruise
Nov 2019
I really enjoyed the Wildlife Cruise. Rachel really knows her wildlife and we had a great time looking at all the wildlife. She even made us a list of everything we saw to help us remember. The boat is just the right size - not too big or too small. There were 9 passengers so it was just the right size so everyone could see the wildlife.
