Sean & Tricia completed a WiSe Course on Saturday 20th March 2021, thank you to Bex Lynam of the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust for arranging it.

Thank you to Colin Speedie for leading the training, Colin is the founder and Director of the WiSe Scheme, you can read a little more about Colin here and more about the WiSe scheme below…

“… The WiSe Scheme is about watching marine wildlife the wildlife-safe way.

Our aim is to promote responsible wildlife-watching, through training, accreditation and raising awareness. The WiSe Scheme is a simple modular training course aimed primarily at wildlife cruise operators, dive and service boats, yacht skippers and sea kayakers, plus people participating in coasteering, stand-up paddle boarding and wild swimming. These groups of people are most likely to come into contact with marine wildlife, as they are likely out on the water on a regular basis. We also seek to educate the general public who are keen to minimise their impact whilst out on or near the water.

Sunday 6th September, we had a lovely group of clients, Sarah Wills shared all the photos in this post with us, thanks Sarah.

She also had the following to say about the trip…

“….Thank you so much for the wonderful whale watching tour yesterday. It was one of the most respectful tours we’ve been on. The ability to just turn off the engine and drift meant we were truly immersed in their world. The experience was very relaxed and the small tour offered everyone the opportunity to see the whales. We will be recommending the tour to family and friends. Staithes is a wonderful example of the Yorkshire coastline and the sunset was magical. We even managed to see the mist rolling over the fields on the way home!…”

As well as Sarah and her husband we had Rachel and her family as well as Helen and her friend Pippa. Helen had the trip bought as a birthday pressie by her daughter Catherine, she had this to say about the trip…

” I just spoke to my mum and she said she LOVED the trip 🙂 I;m quite envious!…” Thanks Catherine & Helen.

This was Rachel and family’s second trip with us, they shared a lovely video from their trip with us last year, which you can see here…. thank you.

Heading back into Staithes at the end of the trip with a stunning sunset, the North York Moors Coast at it’s best…

and to finish with Sarah’s words….

“…. We even managed to see the mist rolling over the fields on the way home!…. The trip was a wonderful memory that will last a lifetime….”
