This is actually a tip rather than a review as we drove two or three hours to take this tour to find that they were unable take the boat out due to the weather conditions. I gave this an excellent as the operator should not be penalized for operating safely. Three days after we were there the boat struck rocks and sank. They were able to get everyone to safety. The trip was not a total waste as the departure point is located in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park which was beautiful, but that is a different review.

This is the only Skomer trip that can be booked in advanced and along with the Skomer cruise is dog friendly.
Loved it and have nothing but positive things to say about the 'seabird spectacular.
The 2hr trip from start to finish was excellent and I couldn't believe it only costs £14 per adult, an absolute bargain.
Our guide/crew member was extremely knowledgeable giving us info on the geology of the islands, marine life, the tides and currents etc and of course the birds.
For many years I had wanted to see a puffin and I was not disappointed as there were 1000's along with various other birds such as gullimots, razorbills, buzzard, Icelandic gull, to name a few.
The boat then took us out into Brides Bay where the graceful manx shearwater wait for darkness to descend before returning to Skomer.
My advice is to book ASAP so as not to miss this excellent boat trip.
Please note that the birds you see will depend on the time of year you go.

Took the evening sea safari to the islands to see the famous puffins and was promised much more. AND THERE WAS SO MUCH MORE...The young crew on the RIB were excellent, friendly and they certainly knew their stuff. They took us on the most exciting trip possible to see not only puffins (great entertaining little birds) razorbills, gannets and even the ellusive manx shearwater to name some, but also seals basking on rocks and even a shy porpoise a few metres from the boat - all under an amazing sunset. I cannot express fully the total wonder of it - you need to experience it - GO!
