Boat Trips on the Pembrokeshire Coast

Choose from an exhilarating range of boat trips circumnavigating Pembrokeshire’s spectacular offshore islands. Boat trips present an unrivaled opportunity for marine wildlife watching: you’re likely to see Atlantic grey seals, especially in pupping season as there are large colonies on the islands; perhaps a pod of porpoises or dolphins and even whales on the further voyages; you’re sure to encounter a wealth of Atlantic sea birds such as gannets, cormorants, peregrines, choughs, razorbills, guillemots and puffins; and let’s not forget the marine world beneath the boat where you can see shimmering shoals, basking sunfish and drifting jellyfish. Incorporating capacious caves, narrow gorges, rocky coves, remote lighthouses, outer reefs and tidal races, each trip offers a unique and unforgettable passage of discovery around this magnificent offshore environment.
