those fascinating arches, caves and stacks. We had a great time

Hi Guys thanks so much for a brilant morning out on the water

Ant  August 2015


Thanks for the great day out, it was probably my highlight of our first trip to Shetland.

It was great to feel the sea, cliffs and wildlife close up

Peter and Delyn  August 2015


A Great coast line with a good knowledge of the area with splashes of close up wildlife, a fabulous mix.

I especially enjoyed the cave access as there is no other way to see that.

It's a shame it was so early on my holiday. As the rest is dim in comparison.

Adam  June 2015


Just a quick note to say how much I enjoyed my  paddle around some of the cliff scenery of South Shetland.

It was just, simply AWESOME ,and the experience will stay with me always!

stay on Shetland.

Terri  June 2015


we had an absolutely amazing day we  both agreed it was truly a magical trip, something we hadn't experienced before.

To see the otter and seals at such close proximity was unbeatable, the birds were amazing and the weather first class.

Catherine and Pat June 2015


Lucy and I had a fabulous time.

We loved the seals, the otters, the gannets, puffins, Arctic terns... And the list goes on.

Thank you being such wonderful guides and making the trip so easy - loved every minute!

Sally and Lucy June 2015


We were away from home on our "grand tour" for 63 days.  We saw London, Paris, Rome.  

We saw Big Ben, the Eiffel Tower, the Coliseum, and castles, cathedrals, museums without number. 

But the one day that I remember the best, the one day I enjoyed the most, was the day we went 

kayaking with Angus and Catriona!

Michael and Heather


The whole experience was truly magical and a highlight of our trip to Shetland. The professionalism of both you & Catriona
was outstanding. Your knowledge of the local areas wildlife and history was greatly appreciated.
A fantastic trip that we would highly recommend to anyone visiting Shetland.

Craig August 2014


Angus and Catriona were fantastic guides and I was most impressed by their professionalism and by their friendliness.
They showed us a stunning area of the coast,

Jacqui  August 2014


Janet and I had a wonderful time with Angus and Catriona.  The sea and landscape were beautiful and Angus and
Catriona were a joy to paddle with. It was a highlight of our trip so far.

Keith and Janet  August 2014


I've been to Shetland before but seeing the coast from the water and exploring the caves was a definite highlight.
I'll certainly be recommending it to all my friends!

Victoria  August 2014


Have to admit I was not looking forward to it and was quite nervous but it was brilliant.......You judged the trip very well,
lots of interest and the right length.

Karen July 2014


Many thanks again to you and Angus- we were expecting to have a good time but you all really went above and beyond
to make the day special.

certainly had excellent weather for it.

Ash and Will  June 2014


Thank you again for the amazing trip of the last weekend. We had an excellent time in Shetland thanks to you.

Baptiste  May 2014


Both days were fantastic in the water. The first was filled with caves in which mareel (phosphorescence) gave us a glittering

welcome until a spectacular sunset drove the day to an end, the same yellow and orangey sun of the Vikings hiding under

the horizon in the most transparent sky. The second allowed me to see the cliffs under the lighthouse of Eshaness that I had

only guessed through the fog in a previous visit. I loved the volcanic mess, the caves, the arches, and in particular, the wild life,

from puffins to seals and the beautiful jelly fish that accompanied us while the waves gently rocked us. Amazingly, the same

sea that days later would crash with fury against the rocks while gale winds collapsed my tent a few metres above where we

were paddling.

Precious memories.

Jose  August 2013


We would just like to reiterate how much we enjoyed our kayaking trip, we both agreed that it was the highlight of our

honeymoon.  Angus is a fantastic teacher and was very patient with a couple of beginners such as ourselves. We would

certainly recommend you to anyone visiting Shetland as an essential part of their holiday.

Elen and Ali  August 2013
