Any boat rides around Wales?

Hi all

We will be travelling to Wales very soon. Wish to know if there are any boat rides around Wales?

Will have a car so moving from a place to another is not a problem.

If you are in the Swansea area:

There is this one from Mumbles around the Gower coast


or if you prefer something a bit slower how about a ride in a restored canal boat on the river Tawe from Swansea Marina

Apart from those mentioned, there are various boat trips from locations in Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion. I'm sure that you will also find some on Anglesey and the Lleyn Peninsula.

You can take brilliant trips from pwllheli to Bardsey Island, and other trips from Caernarvon and I think Bangor, and definitely Conwy, around the Menai Straits.

Great ones round here from Cardigan , larger boats go from Newquay and smaller faster boats that can go in and out of the caves go from Gwbert near Cardigan. The biggest amount of dolphins in Europe swim in Cardigan Bay, plus fantastic number of seals and bird life. Search for Bay to Remember for the smaller boats. Plus canoe, kayak hire from Cardigan if you fancy a paddle. St David's is great for island trips and seeing puffins.
