Boat Cruises

Much of Orkney's best wildlife can be found around its many miles of coastland: from seabird cities to regular dolphin sightings. Often the best way to see these amazing spectacles is to get out onto the water with them.

Amidst the sea cliffs on the Orcadian Mainland's east coast, lies a deep sea-cave known as The Gloup. With the roof having collapsed many years ago, this rugged chasm is now home to a colony of seals, nesting seabirds and more. 

There is no better way to explore the cave than by boat, as long as you have one small enough to navigate the intricate crags of the cliffside. The RSPB Local Group will be running two such trips during the Nature Festival, so take this opportunity to enjoy a natural and geological wonder.

Please note that this event is particularly weather-dependent.
