We are due to dock in Lerwick on a small cruise ship on Wednesday 15th April and are wondering what birds or other wildlife (e.g. seals) we would see at that time of year. I think we will likely be too early to see Puffins, but would be very happy to be corrected if I am wrong on that.
We do not want to book a boat trip in advance in case the ship does not dock for some reason, but would we have a reasonable chance of arranging a boat trip that morning? There do not appear to be any other ships docked, but as it will be the Wednesday after Easter we are thinking there may be a number of other tourists or local day trippers around, so any thoughts on that would be greatly appreciated.
If the weather is not suitable for a boat trip, would we be able to pick up a detailed map which could help us do our own walking tour?Edited: 1 year ago
