Caithness Seacoast Boat Tours
Explore the Caithness coastline by boat
Wick Harbour allows visitors a unique experience – enjoying the water around Caithness with Caithness Seacoast Boat Tours! A local couple, William and Adelaine Munro, are behind the wheel during the exhilarating trip. Their local knowledge and combined seagoing experience mean you’re in for a whale of a time! The tour takes you to all the favourite coastal sights and you get to see them from a whole new angle.
Exhilarating wildlife tours
The Geo Explorer is a 10m long RIB boat with family-friendly seating, which carries twelve passengers. It cruises at speeds of up to 25 Knots. Although wildlife sightings are not guaranteed, you can look out for seals, whales, porpoises, dolphins, puffins, guillemots, razorbills, gannets and more. See how many different animals you can spot! You’ll also get to enjoy the spectacular coastal scenery. Boat tours run seasonally from around April to October and you can book your tour here in advance to secure your place.
Back to Wick and Mackays Hotel for a couple of nights. And not disappointed, as before, a lovely friendly welcome from the proprietor and given the room above the shortest street in the world (Ebeneezer Place, see Guinness Book of Records). Room splendid, food great, beer excellent, wine ditto, pleasant and helpful. Will be back again soon, a real home from home. Thanks to the Lamont family!
