Kids go wild with NorthLink Ferries

Thursday 31st May 2018

NorthLink Ferries is celebrating Scotland’s Year of Young People 2018 by offering its youngest passengers the chance to tap into their wild side.

Pop-up binoculars and wildlife calendars providing helpful nature-watching tips are being offered to younger passengers travelling on the ferry service, helping them spot unique wildlife as they make their way to and from the Northern Isles.

James Linklater, Serco’s Customer Care Manager at NorthLink Ferries, commented: “We’re very pleased to be celebrating Scotland’s Year of Young People 2018 by introducing our youngest passengers to some of Scotland’s most fascinating wildlife.

“Sailing from the Scottish mainland to Orkney and Shetland is the perfect opportunity to take in the sights of some breath-taking species including seals and puffins which can be spotted whilst travelling and during time on the islands.”

The wildlife packs were created in partnership with RSPB Scotland and Orca and form a continuing relationship between the organisations.

Passengers can collect their wildlife pack on board any of NorthLink Ferries’ three passenger vessels.
