Great if you want to see cormorants or shags. Do NOT go if you want to see Puffins. We only saw ONE in the middle of the season. Recorded commentary is poor and from the 1970's. Captain is a global warming denier.More

We took this cruise to see Puffin Island and all its associated wildlife and we were not disappointed. It seems the puffins were late in arriving this year so only a few were around, but there was a profusion of wildlife to see. Made all...More
