Ramsey Island Experience

Enjoy an exciting and exhilarating boat trip around Ramsey Island, that lasts up to an hour and a half. You’ll see wonderful views of the coastline and cliffs that you can’t get from anywhere else, along with basking or swimming seals, aerobatics from the seabirds and maybe even porpoises and dolphins, too. Not only is our trip great fun, with high-speed sprints on the water, it’s also educational too, with so much to learn about the island and the wildlife, making for a perfect experience for kids on holiday and for school trips, as well as for the whole family to enjoy - dogs included!

Owned by the RSPB and operated as a nature reserve, Ramsey Island is a wonderful haven for many different seabirds. Birdwatchers will be in their element, enjoying the antics of a variety of birds at close quarters, including guillemots, razorbills, peregrine falcons, kittywakes, choughs, Manx shearwaters, cormorants, shags, fulmars, oystercatchers and auks amongst many others.

The island is home to the largest colony of Atlantic grey seals in southern Britain and, on our boat trips, you will see lots of them in the island's many bays and caves. Porpoises often come close to the boat, particularly in the turbulent waters between the east side of Ramsey and the mainland, where they take advantage of the choppy waters to catch smaller fish while the tide is on its way in or out. Dolphins are occasional visitors in the summer when the waters are warm.

Ramsey Island’s unusual geology has produced a stunning island of rocky hills and heather moorland, with spectacular cliffs., making it the perfect home for a variety of species and a spectacular sight that you’ll never forget.
