More information

30 years ago we were the first to identify that a fun packed one hour voyage is what people really wanted. Most did not want a drawn out, slow passage with just glimpses of wildlife and heritage features. They wanted to get there fast and have a whole mixture of experiences, to become engrossed and lose track of time. It had to be suitable for all ages and abilities and make sure that everyone had their own unique experience. So with the help of our specialist boats and some expert skippers and guides, the Ramsey Voyage was born. Of course in time everyone else tried to emulate our success.

Now it is our most popular sailing and the busiest on the whole coast. Tens of thousands of people take this sailing every year. It might surprise you but, on busy days with 3 boats running, we can operate this sailing 30 times a day. Yet the customer would never tell, as each sailing is delivered with the same passion and vigour as if it were the only one. Each sailing is different and tailored to those on board, the prevailing conditions and wildlife reports.

Ramsey Island is beautiful in all respects and whether you land, take a voyage or just look at it from a distance on the mainland, it will remain with you for ever.

However, if you really want to experience the wildlife and get close enough to feel part like you’re a part of it, then you have to take a voyage. Nearly all of its outstanding features and wildlife are at the waters edge, on and in the surrounding rich waters. You can only experience this in vessels that are built for the purpose and we can only share them with expert guiding.

Starting at St Justinians (departe point), we power up across the notorious Ramsey Sound.

In minutes we will have crossed the mile wide sound and arrived at Ramsey. Depending on the state of tide, we will explore the massive tidal flow over the Bitches Rocks and stop and talk about some of its shipwrecks.

From there we will choose a route around the island. Each sailing will be different and we will choose the very best bits available on the day. Most sailings will cover the whole island although sometimes if we have dramatic Atlantic swells, we may cover the more comfortable sections.

The sailing will be a whole mixture of powering up, creating some exhilaration, and passing the “boring bits” and then suddenly pulling in and stopping and talking with you about the wildlife. We will get you close to the wildlife and share our knowledge and passion for it. We will engage with you rather than ramble on a dictated passage and we like a bit of spontaneous humour!
