Shetland Seabird Tours – The Noss Boat 2022:
We were delighted and overwhelmed at winning the equivalent of an Oscar in the tourism industry sector last Friday. The Highlands and Islands Tourism Awards are seen as a golden nugget of success and excellence in the hospitality industry, so we were literally knocked sideways with winning ” “Best Visitor Attraction Experience”.
We have worked hard to offer a high quality, original wildlife and photography boat tour option for visitors and locals alike on Shetland, showcasing the best of Shetland’s marine wildlife around Noss NNR. With clear direction, drive, branding, excellent customer service and a strong environmentally conscience ethos, both in our business management and our educational, fun and engaging live boat commentary, we shone through to the 25 strong judging panel who saw our business as a “vocation rather than a job” as well as being impressed by our various exciting business collaborations both locally and further afield.
With our clear passion as birders and naturalists and our heart-felt care for the environment, we could ask for no better award to rocket us forward into 2023 season and beyond. Thank you to all our supporters and to everyone who made this happen for us.
Well done to Shetland-based eatery No.88 & Wild Skies on Unst too! Fabulous to share a table and the night with you 😉
