Join us aboard

We know you’ll have a wonderful time onboard with the Aquaphobia team. You’ll enjoy the thrill of our high-speed runs over open water and learn so much about Ramsey Island and Grassholm Island, while watching the antics and acrobatics of the birds, dolphins, seals, porpoises, gannets and even a whale or two! It’s educational, yes, but it’s great fun and seeing all the wildlife at such close quarters in its natural habitat really is an unrepeatable experience that you’ll never forget.

Our Ramsey Island trips last for up to an hour and a half with seabirds and seals galore, or book the full experience with our two and half to three hour dolphin trips out to Grassholm Island where you can see the third largest colony of gannets in the UK, dolphins, porpoises and maybe even some whales.

Suitable for all family members, young and old alike, and dogs are welcome on all trips!
