Details

Join the resident RSPB team for a guided walk around one of Wales' most breathtaking reserves. Our autumn walks have a special focus on Grey seals as they come onto the island's beaches to give birth. Learn about their fascinating life history and our research program.

We'll spot some of Ramsey's other wildlife along the way, learn about the island's history and find out what it is like to live and farm on a remote island today. This is a full day event - the morning guided walk lasts up to 4 hours, then spend the afternoon at your leisure before the return boat at 16:00.


There is a small shop on the island selling hot and cold drinks and snacks, but not sandwiches. We therefore recommend that walk participants bring their own packed lunch.

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

Booking essential - call 07836 535733.
All sailings are weather dependant.

Location: Ramsey Island, Pembrokeshire, Boats depart from the lifeboat station at St Justinian's, 2 miles west of St David's.

The guided walk route is approximately 3 miles long and climbs to a height of 450 feet/126 metres above sea-level.
