“These are places of magic, peace and beauty.” Rhys
North Pembrokeshire’s offshore islands are a highlight of any visit to Pembrokeshire. Each one has its own special character and unique landscape, where wildlife flourishes and time stands still.
Take a look on our different island pages to learn about the history, geology & wildlife of each.
The Atlantic Grey Seals are resident all year and the strong static population is one of the worlds most important. Found around all the islands and some of the mainland coast their numbers peak in late summer when they give birth to their pups.
Then of course we have the cetaceans – the Whales and Dolphins. Normally on our offshore sailings (not the Ramsey Island sailing) we have some of the most regular and best sightings in the UK. These tend to be between May and September.
Voyages of Discovery are a long established boat trip operator, situated in St Davids – Great Britain’s smallest city, and surrounded by the beautiful Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.
Ramsey Island, an RSPB reserve, lies a mile offshore and further out are the Offshore Islands. These stretch into the Celtic Deep and the warm climate and nutrient rich waters provide sanctuary to a wide spectrum of wildlife. Such is the biodiversity that this area has been designated a Special Area of Conservation (SAC).
