South Stack and Cliffs

South Stack lighthouse viewed from the Irish Sea

Trip description

Leaving Holyhead Marina, we pass the longest breakwater in the UK. We head around the island of North Stack, with its old fog warning station built in 1851, and swing into Gogarth Bay. You get a unique view down into the caves and you can look up in wonder at some of the highest sea cliffs in Wales. The sea cliffs at Gogarth are over 100m in places and create a dramatic backdrop as they run ruggedly around the bay.

As we head to the island of South Stack, we will spot some star species that call this dramatic landscape their home, including Chough, Guillemot, Peregrine, Puffin and Razorbill at the RSPB South Stack Cliffs nature reserve. We will also see the spectacular South Stack lighthouse, built in 1809, before we return.

Very occasionally, in adverse weather conditions, we can’t reach our trip destination and may need to change our route for safety reasons. We want to provide an adventure boat tour that is both safe and highly enjoyable.

You could get wet, so please dress appropriately.
Please wear waterproofs are put on an extra layer for this summer trip.
