Aquaphobia Logo


St Brides Bay (Bae Sain Ffraid in Welsh) is absolutely stunning with sandstone and mudstone cliffs and beautiful sandy beaches. The bay is around seven miles across and is a special area of conservation with Skomer Island to the south and Ramsey Island at the north end of the bay. This area is absolutely teeming with wildlife, including grey seals, dolphins, porpoises and a myriad of seabirds, including kittiwakes, cormorants, gannets, choughs, Manx shearwaters and the ever popular and entertaining puffins.

We set off from St Justinians and you’ll have two whole hours out at sea to explore the whole of St Brides Bay and see the beautiful coastal views of the land from the sea - a whole different way of looking at the local area that you can only get by boat. Take in secluded beaches, towering cliffs, rolling hills, and more. See the large tankers out at sea carrying liquids or gases across the world, from wine to oil, and imagine where they might be going.

We’re experienced sailors and highly knowledgeable about St Brides Bay and you’ll learn a great deal about the area and the local islands we sail by on our trip, including Skomer and Ramsey Island, with their amazing populations of seabirds and seals to enjoy. Make sure you bring your camera to keep those memories of a really special trip!

Our St Brides Bay trip is perfect for your whole family and makes for an educational and fun school trip, too!

Why not explore our other boat trips and book more than one? You can choose from different options, including our dolphin experience, our trips to Ramsey Island or Skomer, and our stunning evening boat trips to catch glorious sunsets and seabirds returning to their nests.

To book for you and your family, or to arrange a school trip, please give our friendly team a call or drop us an email. We’re always happy to help.
