Puffins Dolphins & Tall Ships!

Prices £748 pp

The abundance of anchorages along the National Park Coastline and the Nature Reserve Islands is not the only attraction that Pembrokeshire offers. Famous for its seabird and sea life; manx shearwaters, puffins, seals, dolphins, porpoise plus much more inhabit the waters.

From Angle Bay to Watwick Bay, Pembrokeshire offers an unrivalled A to Z of some of the best secluded beaches in the UK. Barafundle has just been voted one of the best beaches in the Travel Guide, quoted as ‘a visual overdose of beauty’. With Watwick being one of our favourite lunch/swim stops in a westerly.

There are great sea fronted eateries offering locally caught, sustainable seafood: The Griffin at Dale, the Swan in Little Haven, a host of hostelries and eateries in both Solva and Tenby.

Whatever the weather and wind throws at you there is always a cruising destination in Pembrokeshire. Within the sheltered 24 miles of the Milford Haven deep water estuary there are plenty of interesting nooks, anchorages and moorings to discover.

The cruise will coincide with the Seafair Haven, festival of the Milford Haven Waterway. Over 50 classic and traditional vessels attend the haven during the festival week with lots of lively events and live music organised.

To relax after the fun and games a visit to one of the islands is a must:

Lundy Island http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/lundy/ lies around 40 Miles from the mouth of the Milford estuary and provides a beautiful anchorage, tucked under the lighthouse off the southeast end of the island.

In the prevailing SW winds we can have a great sail over 7 to 8 hours and can guarantee the company of Common Dolphin playing on our bow wave. We will enjoy a day or two exploring the island which is named from the Norse ‘Lund’, meaning Puffin… so no excuse!

Skomer Island is just around the corner from us and is a bird lovers paradise. In June the island will be at its best http://www.welshwildlife.org/skomer-skokholm/skomer/ . There are an estimated 3,000 breeding pairs of Puffin and an amazing 316,000 pairs of Manx Shearwater, the largest concentration of these anywhere in the world.

We will certainly anchor and aim to have at least one explore ashore, for close encounters with Puffins – an experience never forgotten.

We have the islands of Ramsey and Caldey to explore, famous for their Seal colonies – so prepare for a wildlife extravaganza.
