The island of Bressay lies to the East of Lerwick in Shetland.
Bressay offers some of the most pristine natural habitat in the whole of Scotland for wildlife and birds.
Lots of wild flowers are scattered across Bressay due to the lack of pesticides used, which in turn provides a great natural habitat for small insects and small animals. This combined with the fruitful seas around Shetland allows birds to thrive.
Many birds nest on Bressay all year round, with Spring and Autumn experiencing a huge influx of migrating birds stopping off on Bressay and Noss on their journeys. Many rare breeds of birds have been spotted here over the years.
Marine life thrives here, with lots of seals scattered along the coast. Otters, Killer Whales and Minke Whales appear at times too.
The island of Noss lies to the East of Bressay. Huge sandstone cliffs have been sculpted over millions of years on Noss due to erosion. Many seabirds use these indents within the cliffs to nest.
Puffins and Gannets come back to their young after a night of fishing to feed their chicks, with the Great Skua hiding ready to pounce on them on their return journey and relieve them of their catch. This aerial pursuit and battle is worth watching from the comfort of our vessel and can be seen regularly.
Brae is a settlement to the North of Lerwick, around a thirty minute drive through some spectacular scenery. Brae offers everything Bressay and Noss offers regarding Seabirds and Wildlife, plus even more striking scenery, and the added bonus of being VERY sheltlered from nearly all directions of wind, allowing for year round boat charters without too much delays or cancellations.
Our minibus collects booked passengers from Lerwick's Victoria Pier slipway in the town centre, (Cruise Ship Tender Berth) at 09:00 and transports
them to our vessel in Brae for a Seabird & Wildlife Cruises to Vementry and Muckle Roe.
We pass some amazing scenery on this run up to Brae and see Shetland Ponies along the route. The ride to Brae take approx. 30 minutes.
When we arrive at Brae we will take you out on our vessel to see some spectacular sights. Seabirds and Wildlife, huge sea cliffs and sea caves, stunning beaches and coastline and marine life galore.
Shetland is a hub of marine life activity with Whales, Dolphins, Orca, Otters, Seal and Seabirds everywhere.
After our boat trip, which usually lasts three hours, we arrive back in Brae just in time for lunch.
We will take you to the world famous FRANKIES FISH AND CHIP SHOP for some very delicious Fish and Chips, all included in the price.
If you are Vegan or Vegetarian, please just let us know, and we can cater for your needs.
After lunch, we take you on a magnificent minibus tour of Shetland, guided by our very own local skipper and guide. He knows all the spots to get great photographs and where some of the less seen animals hide out.
Make sure your camera is fully charged as you will not want to miss that perfect shot.
High sea cliffs, stunning beaches, wildlife, seabirds, historic sights and more can all be seen on our minibus tour of Shetland.
We then return you back to Lerwick for 16:00.
Longer bespoke private tours can be arranged, as well as trips to suit your needs. Just ask. We will do our best to make your Shetland adventure as enjoyable as we can.
There are many wrecks scattered around the Shetland Islands, from recent fishing boats that have floundered, to wrecks that are decades old.
These structures offer safe havens and feeding grounds for many species of fish. We venture out to these wrecks during our sea angling trips, as well as to some of our hot fishing marks.
We specialise in flat fish species like Skate and Torbot, but can cater for huge Cod, prime Haddock, massive Ling, Herring and Mackerel along with man others. Just let us know what you want to fish for, and we will do our best to get you on the fish.
View our latest catches on CharteboatsUk, Facebook and on here in our Sea Angling section.
We mainly fish from Brae or Toft, but can arrange angling trips out of Lerwick if this suits you. We offer a free minibus collection for those doing our Sea Angling trips out of Brae and Toft. This departs from the top of Victoria Pier slipway in Lerwick harbour. Our sign is at the top of the slip.
We can also arrange for collection at a place that suits you better. Just let us know where you would like picked up from.
PRIVATE CHARTERS/ BESPOKE TOURS:
We offer private charters of our vessel as well as bespoke tours of Shetland with a combined boat tour and minibus tour. We can email you all the highlights Shetland has to offer, then you can decide what you would like to do on your trip. We are happy to tailor make a bespoke tour for you so your Shetland adventure is as enjoyable as possible.
Please just ask if there is anything we can do for you prior to and/ or during your stay in Shetland. We are very friendly, and happy to offer any assistance you may require.
