We went on the Dale Princess around Skomer. Apart from a long wait on the narrow gangway (it would've been easier to stay on the beach), the trip was lovely. The crew took us in close to see seal pups then around the whole of the island. They extended the trip so that we could see dolphins and porpoise off... More

We booked the safari on the RIB and we are both good sailors but the conditions yesterday were horrendous. The boat was flying through the air and landing with tremendous thuds that were jarring everybody's spines. Several people were sick. The swell was even worse when we stopped. Everyone's belongings were put in a dry box at the front of... More

Been several times on the Dale Princess to Skomer sometimes landing other times just at sea viewing the birds, dolphins and seals. Very helpful crew and lovely little shop at Martin's Haven. NB The puffins, razorbills etc and usually gone by the end of July but the trip is still worthwhile

We arrived for the 12.30 trip. We made sure we were early so that we were some of the first in the queue. The boat was quite wedged but we could see ok. We managed to see puffins and seals even though it was the end of puffin season. We really enjoyed the trip and will return but this time... More

Myself and two children, 18 & 11 went on an Island Safari. Everything ran to time and everyone was kitted out in life vests. Optional dry suits were available to use if we wished. Access to the boat would not be suitable for some it was narrow and steep, although suitable for us, it was not pointed out at booking.... More

I travelled with Pembrokeshire Islands Boat Trips to Skokholm Island. The service was brought forward by half an hour as the seas were high and due to get rougher. We were warned that this might be the case and were informed the night before so there was no problem accommodating the change in schedule. Safety was paramount. The crossing is... More
