Learn all about our new Explorer Trips; where you will travel and which trip you will go for...
You may have seen our BRAND NEW trips heading out this Summer on our new boat ‘Explorer’. She is built to go further, for longer and keep our customers happy and comfortable.
All of our Explorer trips depart from our office in Menai Bridge and last 2.5 hours. We make sure you are well togged up before you head off; as the notorious Anglesey weather has a habit of changing!
Take in the spectacular scenery as you travel along the Menai Strait out towards the magical Llanddwyn Island and beyond.
Along the way you will pass by Plas Newydd, the seat of the Marquis of Anglesey, the picturesque village of y Felinheli, the Welsh National Outdoor Centre, historic Caernarfon Castle and out towards Abermenai point and Fort Belan.
Conditions permitting you will head out the western entrance of the Menai Strait and around to the stunning Llanddwyn Island. The island, with its golden sweep of Newborough beach, backed by the pine trees of Newborough warren is quite a view!
Time permitting you may well journey further along the western coastline of Anglesey before turning around and heading back.
East Coast Explorer
This tour departs from St George’s Pier, turning tour left and heading along the Menai Strait, past Millionaire's Row, Bangor Pier and the charming coastal town of Beaumaris, before heading out to Puffin Island.
The tour will then cruise along the lesser explored eastern coastline of Anglesey towards the pretty village of Moelfre, Ynys Dulas and out to the tidal race off of Point Lynas.
Great Orme Explorer
This amazing Explorer RIB tour heads out of the Menai Strait, past Puffin Island and out across open sea towards the Great Orme and Llandudno.
Join us for an exciting open sea journey, heading out of the Menai Strait, past Puffin Island and towards the distant Great Orme and Llandudno Pier. It was historically the last leg of the classic journey undertaken by many a paddle steamer from Liverpool exploring the coast, caves and secrets of the unmistakable headland.
Departing from St Georges Pier, you will turn north along the Menai Strait, past Millionaires Row exiting the Strait by Bangor pier opposite the picture perfect town of Beaumaris and its Castle. We then head past Penmon Priory with its shipwrecks to see the wonderful wildlife of Puffin Island.
From Puffin Island we will head out to open sea for a five mile crossing, rounding the Great Orme to the historic Llandudno Pier. As we navigate around the headland, we'll explore its hidden secrets before returning across the bay, and the more sheltered waters of the Menai Strait.
