The Tour

 

We will take in all of the delights offered in the 1-hour trip, but the extra time allows us the opportunity to sit, relax and marvel in the natural beauty of Ramsey Island and the fantastic wildlife that inhabits it.

 

We will also access some of Ramsey’s more tucked away caves and gorges. Whilst it is easy to while away the entire two hours exploring Ramsey’s dramatic coastline and wildlife we may head further offshore to the waters around the outlying South Bishop lighthouse or North Bishop puffin colony, depending on conditions.

 

What you can expect to see?

 

As with the 1 hour Ramsey Island trip you would expect to see guillemots, razorbills and kittiwakes in spring and early summer, and rare species of bird such as the peregrine falcon and the chough.

 

The star of the show year round seems to be the Atlantic grey seal, for which Ramsey is one of the largest breeding colonies in the UK. We regularly encounter a pod of harbour porpoise as they feed in the tidal waters of the Sound. If we venture to the North Bishop you will also see the technicolour puffin.

 

Who is the trip suitable for?

 

The trip is generally suitable for all ages but please feel free to contact us if you have any concerns.
