AQUAPHOBIA’S SKOMER ISLAND BOAT EXPERIENCE

From April until mid-July, you can enjoy the trip across St Brides Bay to Skomer Island (Ynys Sgomer in Welsh). Depart from St Justinian's and enjoy the stunning scenery during the two-hour sail across the bay and around Skomer Island to take in the sight of the local wildlife. There are 10,000 pairs of puffins on the Island, and you’ll love watching their antics, along with Manx Shearwaters, guillemots, cormorants, razorbills, gannets and more. Look out for seals sunning themselves on the rocks, and porpoises, too. You might be lucky and spot a pod of dolphins playing in the waves. You’ll definitely want to bring your camera and take endless photos to remind you of this amazing experience.

Skomer itself is well worth seeing. Located just off the beautiful Pembrokeshire coast, you’ll find dramatic, sheer cliffs, gorgeous bays and beaches, and, in Spring, a full carpet of nodding bluebells and campions across the whole island for a sight you’ll never forget.

Our skipper is highly experienced and knowledgeable, and these fun and entertaining trips are ideal if you’d like to learn more about the coast and Skomer Island, as well as the wildlife. School visits are more than welcome, too, and your kids will love learning all about the birds, seals and porpoises. Or simply sit back, relax and take in the experience of being out at sea with all the amazing sights. Perfect for all the family, schools, couples, and solo bookings, you can even bring your dog along to join in the fun.

It’s easy to book with our friendly team to secure your spot on the trip of a lifetime. Just give us a call or send us an email!

And if you want more, we have a whole range of other fun boat trips to check out, including our Ramsey Island trip, dolphin watching and our atmospheric evening boat trips to enjoy some spectacular sunsets.
