Puffin Island Pleasure Cruise from Beaumaris Pier, is a very popular pleasure cruise that provides stunning panoramic views of Pennon lighthouse, Puffin Island, and the Snowdonia Mountain Range.
This fantastic cruise lasts about 75 minutes, and offers the chance to see the large range of local bird life in their natural habitats. When you arrive at Puffin Island, also known as Ynys Seiriol (St. Seiriol's Island, named after a 6th century monk), you can expect to see at least 12 different species of sea bird, including kittiwakes, guillemots, cormorants, and of course, puffins!
A colony of grey seals have made the east end of the island their home, and they can often be seen basking in the sunshine, or swimming in the sea. Harbour porpoises and bottlenose dolphins also inhabit the waters around the island, and occasionally surface near the boat, so keep your eyes peeled!
This is not just a boat trip but also a complete guided tour, with a full commentary along the way, which will appeal to all ages. All tickets can be booked at the kiosk on the pier during the summer months, or over the telephone.
