We encourage our holiday homeowners to take advantage of our boat park and launching facilities, and as a result we know we have a good few maritime enthusiasts among us! We also know how exciting exploring the coastlines of Anglesey can be, so for those who don’t have a boat to take advantage of, or even current owners looking for a new experience, we have put together a guide to the boat trips and tours around our island ready for you and your family to enjoy.
Anglesey Boat Trips
With plenty of options for trips along the coastline and Menai strait, including to charter your own private skippered speedboat, or even drive yourself, Anglesey Boat Trips has a very wide variety of experiences for you to choose from. With 4 locations you can pick which area of the coastline you fancy exploring; you can also decide whether you want to go for a slow boat trip and take in the view, or thrill seekers can opt for a fast breathtaking experience.
If you and your family are more partial to cruising leisurely on the water, the cruises provided from Seacoast Safaris will be just right for you.
With plenty of cruises lasting for different lengths of time, exploring around different areas of the island and the choice to opt for a live commentary, we can’t think of a better way to spend your day. There are plenty of opportunities to observe the wildlife, from marine mammals to the many different species of bird including herons, oystercatchers and more. However, in case you want to try something a bit different, Seacoast Safaris also runs adventure RIB tours for an exhilarating ride, or private charters to let you discover the coast in your own time.
RibRide Bear Grylls RIB adventures
For those of you who are more in the mood for adventure, RibRide have introduced their Bear Grylls Adventure Boat Tours. Working in partnership with Bear to create this experience, RibRide utilises a RIB that has been tested in extreme arctic environments to ensure it is perfect for your adventure ride.
The ride involves taking you to see the “Skerries”, a unique group of rocky islands, or you can also travel to Gogarth to see the cliffs and caves. You are guaranteed some spectacular sea birds regardless of which boat tour you choose, and expert skippers help make every trip an enjoyable event with their fascinating stories and facts. You could also choose to take a ribride to see the famous puffins of Puffin Island, with a possibility of a visit from some seals, or one of their other exciting ribrides with different itineraries.
