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.

Aaaaah Grassholm, land of gannets, land of smell! Good luck to Ramsey Island RSPB Centre wardens on their gannet logging trip today. If you fancy experiencing this sensory wonder for yourselves, hop on to our seabird, whale and dolphin expedition.
Lovely to have passengers out today who had seen Ffion and Jackie’s talk about Hiss the peregrine at Hay Festival last year out on the boat today to see some peregrines in the wild. Hiss was a peregrine that Ffion saved from drowning at Ramey Island, rehabilitated and released into the wild. Luckily the wildlife obliged and we got to see these beautiful birds!

Beautiful slow mo common dolphin footage from our trip with Sea Watch foundation this week.
Did you know it’s National Whale and Dolphin Week? (#NWDW). This week we will be sharing some of the cetaceans you can see in the UK. Today we chose the awe inspiring orca. These can be hard to find in the UK but they are around! This is a pic Hannah snapped on the North Atlantic last year. Also, if you are interested, check out our trip in collaboration with Sea Watch.
Big day for St Davids Lifeboat RNLI as they got good old Norah (the lifeboat) in the station for the 1st time. Ffi has been on the lifeboat crew for about 11 years now, saving lives at sea. She can’t wait to slide down the new ramp!
Another glorious day in Pembrokeshire. Last night we headed out to the North Bishop & managed to catch up with a few puffins. The auks (razorbills, puffins and guillemots) are leaving the islands now, heading out to sea for the rest of the summer, Autumn and winter. If you fancy seeing them, don’t wait, hop on a boat in the next few days to catch them before they are gone.
Last week Hannah abandoned us for adventures on the west coast of Scotland aboard Eda Frandsen Sailing. This is what she got up to:
It is such a stunning bit of coastline and exploring it by sail seems like the perfect thing to do. The weather was beautiful with perfect light winds. We sailed to Skye, Canna and the Knoydart peninsula. Amazing food including the freshest crab you can get and lovely company. Would highly recommend them. Thanks James, Chloe and Gabriel.
