Whale watching season. You may be fortunate to see a whale in the waters around Deerness & Scapa Flow. If you are lucky you might spot dolphins. Local boat trips may be able to take you out. If you wish to stay on dry land, look out over western waters/cliffs and shores for sightings. Eighteen different species of whales and cetaceans have been spotted in Orkney waters.
