Owner description: Seacoast Safaris, Puffin Island Cruises, Adventure RIB Rides & much more. From our Leisurely Puffin Island Cruises to our high-speed adrenaline fuelled RIB Rides and everything in-between, we cater for the whole family, so why not join us in ‘Exploring Wild Wales’. Seacoast Safaris are based in the town of Beaumaris, situated on the banks of the Menai Straits in the eastern most corner of Anglesey, we are perfectly positioned to offer the most stunning, beautiful, scenic and wildlife packed boat trips. Our company ethos is all about experiencing nature and wildlife in its natural habitat and ensuring the best wildlife encounters with minimal disturbance. We believe in bringing people closer to the very best of Anglesey’s wildlife. We are the only operator in the area to have a range of vessels to offer different boating experiences, from 90-minute family cruises aboard our passenger vessel Cerismar Two, to action packed adventure RIB rides and new for 2017 we will be running our Premier Cruises on our brand-new vessel Neptune Explorer, including round Anglesey tours.

Today was my second trip out on Cerismar Two. My first trip with my friends was so enjoyable that I took my nieces and nephew on today's 11am cruise. Having now sailed out to Puffin Island twice, I have experienced the commentary of both skippers and although their styles of delivery may differ somewhat, both are highly informative and true experts on the local waters, landscape, and wildlife.

During the 90+ minute trip we saw guillemots, cormorants, kittywake, oyster catchers, a number of gulls, and even the elusive puffin. We were delighted to have spotted five puffins as the skipper had warned us that they may have already flown north for the winter. He made extra efforts to spin the boat round so that everybody could get a good look at these amazing little birds.

There were two highlights of the trip for my family. Firstly was the colony of seals which can be found on the island's headland. Again, Scott the skipper manoeuvred the boat to ensure that none of the passengers missed out on the photo opportunity. Secondly, my niece and nephew were invited to drive the boat on the way back to Beaumaris and they were overjoyed.

There are warm jackets available for those who are getting a bit wet from the spray. The skippers both welcome questions throughout the trip, their local knowledge is second to none.

At less than £10 per adult, this really is a true bargain. Make sure that you make the Cerismar Two your cruise of choice - I'm going again before the end of the summer because rumour has it that there are even dolphins to be found! Thanks very much Scott and Nad :)

Booked a trip for the 25th of July at the start of our holiday and thoroughly enjoyed it. The skipper was very knowledgeable being a marine biologist. She pointed out everything around us and made it a very enjoyable trip. I would recommend this cruise to anyone.

It was a day out with grandchildren which can be stressful. Two Boys and one girl aged between nine and twelve is an audience which is difficult to satisfy but here is an attraction which did just that.

We were lucky insofar as we saw a wide range of birds including the all important puffins, Yes there was also seals.

Yes the commentary was great because at the end of the hour and a half activity grandparents and grandchildren both had comments about what they had heard, For me there was a nice blend of the history of the area combined with the detailed explanation about the bird life.

A definite "Do again activity"
