“A wonderful afternoon trip”

Reserve Naturelle des Sept Iles
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 16 July 2014

We did the 2.5 hour trip which enabled us to land on Ile des Moines for 45 minutes. Didn't see any seals but saw the enormous gannet colony, mini-penguins, cormorants and even some puffins. Both the guides giving the commentaries were very knowledgeable and informative, though your French needs to be very good to understand them. That said, it would still make a fascinating trip even if you didn't understand. Landing on the island was magical and the colours of the sea just stunning. A definite "must do".

Anyone who has an interest in all things nature should take this trip if in the vicinity. The boats are very well maintained and their crew very knowledgeable. We were fortunate that the day we visited the sea was almost flat calm - but the variety of birds was incredible and we saw baby seals basking on rocks. Landing on the island revealed an almost 'moonscape' environment

The two hour boat trip from Perros-Guirec was a most interesting experience - we soon arrived at the island bird sanctuary populated by thousands of sea birds with a variety of species - one of the crew provided an informative commentary ( note - a knowledge of french is required )- the boat slowed and this gave an excellent opportunity for close up photos - the journey continued to several other islands and we were able to see close up the stunning pink granite formations previouly only seen from the land - stunning!!

Being on the water is always fun, but the whole trip appeared to be about seeing birds. The man who explained what we saw, did so in French, of which we didn't understand much.
Also mind that there are no safety measures for children (should they happen to fall in the water). So keep them very close!

This is something you must do. We did it with one 5-year-old boy and one 2-year-old and they loved it. With seen a fou-de-bassan seabirds colony (7 in the world), a porpoise, a seal and we got a sunny weather with calm sea. The guides were really educational and entertaining. Awesome !
