You are in safe hands with us! Skipper Ffion Rees may be small, but she is mighty! She has been working the waters round Ramsey for over 20 years (even if she doesn’t look it), a member of the lifeboat crew for over 10 years, a WISE accredited skipper, powerboat instructor and a qualified Marine Mammal Observer. Oh, and she has recently completed her first Atlantic crossing, just something she did in her spare time!
Well well, thats the season done for one of us! Hannah’s last day was yesterday, finished off with a lovely sunset shearwater trip, soaking up the best of Pembrokeshire before heading up north, which can only mean one thing, next year we will be recruiting. All suitable applicants must have a hearty appetite, be able to mock Ffion for her Croc wearing tendencies and ability to grow at least three chins whenever faced with a camera!
What’s the perfect way to spend a Friday morning? I hear you ask. Well, how about coming out to Grassholm and the Celtic Deep on our seabird, whale and dolphin expedition. Sightings this year have been amazing and Grassholm is not to be missed. Spaces available to Friday morning, contact the office to book on 07494141764.
Looks like the sun is going to come to come out tomorrow (fingers crossed!) We have spaces from 13:15 onwards if you would like to join us. Photo starring Rosie the dog, who will not be on the boat tomorrow as she cannot be trusted not to abandon ship.
Nothing more fascinating than a jellyfish in a bucket
Looks like the dolphin dance worked! So many commons on our offshore this morning.
Saving bees! We picked this bee up near the island hitching a ride on a jellyfish!
We are a ‘Hidden Gem’, who knew! A few weeks ago we had a mystery passenger who was doing our accreditation for Visit Wales, very happy to say we passed with flying colours, got an excellent score and were named as a Hidden Gem.
It’s wonderful to see that all our hard work and passion is being well received. Thank you to our amazing staff Ffion, Anthony, Hannah, Pete, Sam and Angie for all of your hardwork and thank you to our passengers for being simply the best! We will be out on the water again tomorrow if you fancy joining us.
Common dolphin in Ramsey Sound today, what a treat!
Back to reality…
For the last 2 weeks Hannah (@slightly_salty_ ) been at @camyoga for the 1st part of her yoga teacher training. Having spent hours every day practising yoga, breaking down poses, teaching, learning so so much, meeting great people and generally skiving off work, tomorrow we are sending her back out to sea, back on the boat. So come and book a trip tomorrow, and maybe bring her snacks to ease her back into the swing of things! 🙂 The weather is looking beautiful, come and enjoy Pembrokeshire’s coast at its best.
