About Skomer Island Landing Trips

The only boat trip to land on Skomer and give you the opportunity to get within a few feet of Pembrokeshire’s famous puffins! A 15 minute boat ride takes you to the island where you’ll spend the day in this wildlife paradise before catching a return boat in the afternoon.

Pembrokeshire’s stunning islands and their surrounding waters provide unique, internationally significant wildlife habitats for thousands of fascinating species including puffins, razorbills, gannets, guillemots, manx shearwaters, grey seals, dolphins, whales, porpoises and many more...

Take a walk through Skomer's stunning floral displays - acres of bluebells (May), red campion, thrift, sea campion and heather; get to within a few feet of the famous Pembrokeshire puffins (April to July), and take in the superb geology and Britain's largest undisturbed prehistoric Iron Age settlement with hut circles, cemeteries and field systems.
Grey seals can be seen all year round but particularly interesting is the pupping season from late August until October when milky white seal pups can be viewed suckling on the beaches and surrounding flat rocks, and we regulary see dolphins and porpoises on the boat journey to the island.

We're a long established local company and have been offering wildlife trips and cruises for many years. We are the only boat operator permitted to land on both Skomer and Skokholm Islands – nature reserves managed by the Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales.

All Skomer Island day visit tickets must be pre-booked online (click the button at the top of this page). The number of visitors is limited to 250 a day to prevent erosion and to control the impact of people on the wildlife, so keep an eye on our website and social media channels to find out when bookings open for the following year and try to book early. Parking is in Martin's Haven car park where the road ends and you will need to check in and collect your boarding tickets from Wildlife Trust staff at Lockley Lodge, also in Martins Haven, 1 hour before your boat departs. The first boat leaves from the jetty at 10am.
