The South Stack tour is onboard our Explorer RIB and departs from Holyhead Marina.
After meeting your skipper by the Marina café, you’ll head down to Explorer where you will have a short safety briefing and don your life jackets ready for an exhilarating tour onboard our offshore RIB.
Leaving Holyhead Marina we pass the longest breakwater in the UK. We head around the island off 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.
Our skippers are your fast and fun adventure guides to the dramatic landscape and spectacular sea birds.
Please note: This is a tour to a breath-taking but remote area, which is exposed to all elements. The very nature of such remoteness means that there are certain weather conditions during which we might have to choose an alternative route. In this case, all our Skippers have complete discretion to amend the trip to ensure they provide both a safe and highly enjoyable experience for you.
