Voyages of Discovery

By Kathryn Slade Pembrokeshire Dolphins

As Pembrokeshire is the only coastal National Park in the UK there are some amazing places to explore along the shores and you might even get to spot some wonderful wildlife too! During your Bluestone break take advantage of our location right in the heart of the Pembrokeshire and take a day away from the resort exploring all that our county has to offer.

If a day on the sea is on your Bluestone break bucket list then we would highly recommend planning a trip with Voyages of Discovery, a boat tour operator based in St David’s Pembrokeshire. They offer a range of expertly guided voyages around the Pembrokeshire islands. Whether you want a sensitive wildlife observation, a thrilling expedition around the coast, or something completely different, Voyages of Discovery can tailor a trip exactly to your needs.

Voyages of Discovery Boat Trip
Here are just some of the experiences that you can enjoy!

Ramsey Island Voyage

This trip is suitable for all ages and is available almost all year round with a handful of winter sailings too. Incorporating the dramatic sea caves and sailing through the narrow rock gorges circumnavigating Ramsey Island, you’ll be looking out for the Atlantic Grey Seals and Harbour Porpoises along with a multitude of both migrating and nesting seabirds on your trip.

The Islands Expedition

This expedition goes that little bit further in exploring the wildlife and features of Ramsey Island, and also ventures out to Skomer Island to see the large Puffin colony (providing weather conditions are suitable).

Pembrokeshire Boat Trip

Whale and Dolphin watching off the West Wales Coast

You’ll sail first to Grassholm Island – a spectacular sight, and home to the fourth largest gannet colony in the world before heading offshore on a sweep of distant waters in search of cetaceans. This voyage has provided excellent sightings of dolphins, porpoise, rissos dolphin, minke and even fin whale and leatherback turtles.

Voyages of Discovery also offer disabled access voyages, and sustainable fishing trips; these trips are dependent on the sea conditions and tides but Voyages of Discovery will be more than happy to help you organise these trips.
