st davids dolphin Experience

Relax and enjoy up to three hours at sea around the beautiful Ramsey Island looking for whales and dolphins and then out to the amazing gannet colony at Grassholm Island.

Ramsey Island is spectacular, with towering cliffs humming with life as seabirds nest and raise their young, beautiful coves and bays where seals bask, feed and raise the next generation of pups and very curious seals and porpoises who want to look at you as much as you want to look at them. We even sometimes get porpoises coming right up to the boat!

More About st davids dolphin Experience

As well as a tour of Ramsey Island, we’ll also go further out to see if we can spot dolphins and maybe even a whale or two. Trust us, that’s an experience of a lifetime!

And if that wasn’t enough, we’ll also head out to Grassholm Island (Ynys Gwales or Gwales in Welsh), lying eight miles from the gorgeous Pembrokeshire coast, and the third largest gannet colony in the whole of the UK. As you get closer, you’ll realise that what you’re seeing isn’t snow. The island is white because there are 39,000 breeding pairs of gannets occupying every available inch of space. Depending on the time of year, you can see the males vying for females and bringing in nest building materials or, later in the year, you might get a glimpse of the chicks before they fly the nest.

The waters around Grassholm Island are the perfect feeding ground for dolphins and porpoises too, and the whole family will love learning about the islands and the local wildlife. And dogs are welcome too.

In open water, you’ll even get an exhilarating high-speed run or two to make this even more of an experience to remember.
