Boat Trips to Skomer and Grassholm

Andy Davies, who lives near Marloes and runs the Pembrokeshire Wildlife blog is running boat trips out to Skomer and Grassholm on Thursday and, hopefully, Sunday evenings when conditions are good. The trips will visit Skomer on the way out to see Puffins, Guillemots, Razorbills etc and then go out to Grassholm to see the gannetry - always a real spectacle. Then into St Brides Bay on the way back to link up with Manx Shearwaters returning to the islands. Whilst primarily aimed at the birds there will be a chance of seeing Porpoises and Common Dolphins.
The trips will leave Martin's Haven at 5 p.m. on The Lady Helen (sister boat to the Dale Princess) and return around 10:30 p.m. Cost will be around £60 to £80 per head depending on the number on each trip.
If you are interested please e mail Andy on andy@andydavies.info . He will add you to a database and contact you a couple of days in advance if the trip is going to run.
