Ramsey Island Night Boat Trip Experience

If you’re an ornithology enthusiast or just love getting out on the water, you can’t do better than our entertaining and educational night boat trips in the summer to see the incredible and intriguing Manx Shearwaters on Ramsey Island. The Shearwater is an amazing bird that spends its days out on the water, flying just ten metres above the ocean, before returning to Ramsey Island at night to nest, often using burrows dug by rabbits.

It’s an amazing sight watching the Shearwaters returning home to Ramsey Island in the evenings and , by boat, you can experience the dramatic, unforgettable beauty of the Island, with its spectacular coastline, towering cliffs, sweeping hills, heather covered moorland and stunning bays and coves, along with the ever changing mood and landscape of the sea itself.

At other times of the year, when the Shearwaters have migrated all the way to the South Atlantic, you can enjoy the ocean at sunset or a sky full of stars, for an atmospheric and exhilarating trip of a lifetime.

This is a full and exciting boat trip of one and a half hours with plenty of time for you to take in the amazing views and take endless photographs to remind you of your time on board. There’s a lot to learn and enjoy about Ramsey Island and the local wildlife and so much to see on your trip that we promise you’ll never forget the experience.

Perfect for the whole family and a great school trip for the kids to learn about the local wildlife and the ocean, you’ll have a great time with us on one of our evening boat trips. And you can even bring the dog!

We’re knowledgeable and informative guides to what you’ll see on your trip, and you’ll be sailing with an expert skipper who knows exactly how to give you the best experience out at sea.

Get in touch with our friendly team at Aquaphobia Boat Trips and book yourself an evening boat trip that you’ll never forget!

Don’t forget to check out our other fantastic boat trips, including the chance to see dolphins, gannets, porpoises, so many varieties of sea birds, and maybe even a whale or two!
