RSPB Islands Experience

Details

The day begins with an exhilarating boat trip to RSPB Grassholm Island Nature Reserve to see the spectacular gannet colony, in the company of a Thousand Island Expeditions wildlife guide. During the trip we look for puffins, Manx shearwaters and many other seabirds as well as porpoise, seals and the possibly larger marine mammals.

We then return to land on RSPB Ramsey Island where one of the wardening team will introduce you to this beautiful island nature reserve in the island’s display room. You will be given a brochure containing a basic map of the island; it is then time to explore the island at your leisure. RSPB staff and volunteers will be on hand to answer any questions about Ramsey and Grassholm.

Booking essential. For more information and to book please visit www.thousandislands.co.uk/grassholm-island-boat-trips.html or call Thousand Islands Expeditions on 01437 721721.

All sailings are weather dependant.
Directions: Boats depart from the lifeboat station at St Justinians, 2 miles west of St Davids.

There is a small shop on Ramsey island selling hot and cold drinks and snacks, but not sandwiches. Toilet facilities are available at the St Justinians car park and on Ramsey Island.

It is essential to bring warm and waterproof clothing in inclement weather, as there is no cover on the boat and the crossing to Grassholm can be wet. Sunscreen and a hat are also advisable in hot weather.

Due to the steep steps in St Justinians and in Ramsey harbour and the rough terrain on the island trail, a reasonable level of fitness is required and sturdy footwear with good grip and ankle support, ideally walking boots, are recommended.

Ramsey is a rat free island. If you are bringing a picnic, please ensure it is securely packed in a rucksack or cool bag. Open carrier bags are not permitted. If you leave your bag unattended in St Justinian’s for any time, please check it carefully for signs of rodent damage before boarding the island boat.
