Puffin Island Cruises

Certainly our most popular cruise and it’s easy to understand why, during your leisurely 90 minutes you’ll take in some wonderful scenery and landmarks including Penmon Lighthouse and you’ll also spot plenty of wildlife. Puffin Island is a bird sanctuary and a nesting site for many species of breeding seabirds, there’s also a resident colony of Atlantic Grey Seals. You may even be lucky enough to encounter porpoise, sometimes even dolphin.

Menai Straits Cruises

A popular choice for tourists and locals alike, many people travel over the bridges onto the island, but few can say they've sailed under them through the infamous 'Swillies'. This 90-minute cruise will head in a South Westerly direction down towards Menai Bridge with breath-taking scenery and awesome architecture. Look out for grey heron standing like statues along the banks while other wading birds such as oystercatchers and curlew explore the lower shores.

Coastal Cruises

Brand new for 2020... A relaxed and scenic 2 ½ hour cruise showing you the best of the Anglesey and North Wales coastline and wildlife. You will have plenty of time to unwind and absorb the beauty of this little corner of North Wales with a live commentary and plenty of photo opportunities.
