Delve into the incredible world of Pembrokeshire’s coastal wildlife with a National Trust ranger

National Trust adventure days

Join our family friendly kayaking and coasteering wildlife tours to explore the pristine National Trust coastline on the wild and beautiful North Pembrokeshire coast.

On these tours we’ll take you to the best secret spots and the unspoilt, 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!

What’s a national trust wildlife discovery tour?

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!
