National Trust Coastal Discovery Wildlife Tours

Below are details of our 2015 adventure wildlife tours run jointly between Preseli Venture and the National Trust. If you’re looking for our regular ADVENTURE DAYS click here.

Join our family friendly kayaking and coasteering wildlife tours to explore the pristine National Trust coastline on the wild and beautiful north Pembrokeshire coast. The tours are led by a National Trust ranger and Preseli Venture guide with a focus on exploration, wildlife spotting, and the geology and history of the area. You are taken out along the coast to explore beneath towering sea cliffs, through amazing rock gardens, and to poke about among the many inlets and channels that make up this inspirational rocky coastline. You will kayak or coasteer into echoing sea caves, see Atlantic grey seals, sea birds such as razorbills, guillemots, shags and gannets and discover rocky shore life up close and natural!

On these tours we aim to take you to the best secret spots and show you the best unspoilt and wild areas of this stunning part of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. Anyone can participate, no experience is required, so go on, jump in and join us for some really wild exploring, and discover coastal wildlife you never knew before!
