Explorer back at Holyhead Marina

Fri 12th May 2017

The RibRide Explore is back at Holyhead Marina. Taking trips to Gogarth and the Skerries over the summer months.

There are so many sights and sounds from these two special trips we went out on Wednesday, 10 May 2017. This was the first scheduled trip of the summer season.

Here is a short film featuring some of the ‘star’ sea birds we saw…


On our trip from Holyhead Marina, we spotted:

  • Razorbills – Gogarth Cliffs
  • Guillimots – Gogarth Cliffs
  • Puffins – the Skerries
  • Arctic terns – the Skerries
  • Common terns – the Skerries
  • Choughs – Anglesey, at the end of the the Skerries trip
  • Gannets –  Anglesey, at the end of the the Skerries trip

If you want to see the Puffins and Terns May is a brilliant time of year to visit. In June the birds can be out at sea fishing. In July the young are starting to fledge. In August most of the summer visitors are thinking of departing.
