Boudicca  •  D1716
Tobermory, UK
Tobermory, UK

Encounter a diverse range of fascinating fauna on a very special circumnavigation of mainland Britain aboard Boudicca, stopping at picturesque destinations in England and Scotland along the way to discover some of the UK’s finest nature reserves, sprawling countryside and wildlife-watching hotspots. 

Embark on a magical boat ride from Tobermory to explore the Sound of Mull, where minke whales, porpoises, seals, dolphins and birds of prey including sparrowhawks and golden eagles are often seen; and be on the lookout for orcas as you cruise along the Pentland Firth en route to Kirkwall. Here you can venture out into the rugged landscapes of the Orkneys in search of hen harriers and kestrels, insects such as the endangered great yellow bumblebee, and the endemic Orkney vole before continuing onwards to Lerwick to see Shetland Ponies and witness some of the UK’s most spectacular coastal scenery.

Have your binoculars to hand as you glide slowly by the Farne Islands – Sir David Attenborough’s favourite place in the UK to see nature at its best – to spot puffins, guillemots, razorbills and large seal colonies dotted along the shores; then call into the quintessentially English seaside town of Southwold, where you could enjoy fish and chips on the pier; sample the local brew at the famous Adnams Brewery; or visit RSPB Minsmere, which starred in the 2016 series of BBC's Springwatch and is a haven for birdwatchers. Portsmouth – your final port of call – is perfectly placed for trips to the beautiful New Forest, the Farlington Marshes and Chichester Harbour, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Please note, this is an adult only sailing (18+).

Single supplement offers are available on selected grades on this sailing, please call for details.
