Neptune Premier Cruises

New for 2018, Neptune Explorer is offering a variety of extended cruises for you to choose from, her fast cruising speed and comfortable layout provide the perfect platform for you to enjoy Anglesey’s coastline away from the crowds. 

Cruises will be available throughout the year, departing from Beaumaris, but with enough planning we can take you pretty much anywhere you want to go (within reason of course) some of our favourite destinations are:

Islands Cruise: heading out and around Puffin Island first, this cruise then continues through Red Warf Bay past the popular sea-side destinations of Benllech and Traeth Bychan and on to Moelfre Island. This cruise offers a great opportunity to see wildlife, no guarantees, but porpoise and even dolphin are often seen in this area. (2 ½ hour cruise)

Castles Cruise: with Beaumaris Castle as a backdrop from our departure point we’ll follow the route of the Menai Straits and Bridges Cruise but continue further along to enjoy the splendour of Caernarfon castle with its iconic polygonal towers and finally Fort Belan. (2 ½ hour cruise)

2 ½ hour cruise prices: Adults £22, Children (4-16) £18, Infants (3 & under) free

Round Anglesey Cruise: this cruise aims to take you right the way round Anglesey’s impressive 70 mile coastline taking in all of the cruises above and much more. Definitely one to pack a picnic for, lasting around 6 hours, but don’t worry you won’t be caught short there’s a loo on the boat. The tides and weather around the island have to be favourable, in the event of poor weather we will endeavour to show you as much of the Anglesey coastline and/or surrounding coast instead. Booking for a private charter and the maximum number of passengers is 12. (Approximately 6 hour cruise).  Please note in certain weather conditions if it's not possible to circumnavigate the whole island, the route will be altered.

6 hour cruise private charter for up to 12 passengers price £650

The main season is between April and October, we try and sail daily from 11am (or earlier by prior arrangement) but please check for specific times either on the online booking page or by phone before making a journey to come and see us.

For trips between November and March, private charters and large groups please contact us.

We will only operate if it is safe to do so. Often if conditions do not allow us get to Puffin Island there may still be an option to sail in the Menai Straits as it is more sheltered. In certain conditions you may get a little wet so please ask on the day. If you are making a special journey please make sure you call to check your sailing before setting out. Our round Anglesey cruises are the most weather dependant, we’ll always do our best to take you, but in certain conditions it’s just not possible to do it safely, in those circumstances if it’s possible we’ll run a cruise of the same duration wherever it’s most sheltered.

If you have a specific health problem that concerns you with regard to taking a boat trip then just let us know, but generally if you feel well enough to go it should be fine.

All our vessels fully conform to the MCA codes and licensing and carry all the necessary safety equipment. All vessels carry appropriately sized lifejackets and life rafts for all passengers.

You are not required to wear a lifejacket during our cruises.

Fantastic day out with Seacoast Safaris!
