We had a 2 hour sightseeing trip in calm weather, wich probably was great luck! The boat sailed close along the cliffs, so we could see the sheep all the way. There were not much movement in the water, so we had some extraordinary manouvers...More

This is a great ride for anyone interested in the landscape and particularly the birds. The cliffs are amazing and the boat goes into and out of some of the caves. Seas were rocky on our day which just made it more interesting. Good commentary....More

The boat tour is well commented and there is some description about the villages you pass with the boat. After some time you reach several cliffs full of birds. Two hours very well spent.

Just being out on the sea with a lot of puffins flying round you was great. The beautiful scenery from the water was fab and while we didn't see steels or the puffins up close it still felt special. Highly recommended.

We took this 2 hour bird cliff tour in late April. The views are breathtaking. I highly recommend it to anyone. The tour was in English and I thought the guide did a great job of talking about everything on the way down the cliffs...More

Nice 2 hours trip to impressive rocks and small sea caves. Bring warm clothes along, it will get cold and windy. You can not buy anything on board, limited information on the way

We did the trip today, we booked yesterday. The trip was very calm, but I guess it depends vastly on the weather.
