The best way to see Puffin Island is by boat, and this cruise offers the full guided tour
There’s no better way to explore the Welsh coast, its offshore islands and marine wildlife than by water. The Isle of Anglesey, in North Wales, has plenty to offer the discerning seafarer and Starida Puffin Island Cruises and Fishing Trips will help you to get your coastal fix.
Set off from the beautiful pastel-painted town of Beaumaris, with its striking 13th century castle. Wildlife lovers could take a pleasure cruise on the Menai Strait to Puffin Island to see the bird sanctuary and seal colonies, with a guided tour and full commentary.
Keen anglers, meanwhile, should hop aboard one of the sea-fishing trips, where there’s plenty of help and advice to hand as well as the chance to reel in a whopper. The waters around Anglesey are said to be among the best in the country and these trips are open to beginners and experienced alike, taking you quickly to the best spots in turbo charged boats.
Dogs are welcome to join their owners on these trips and the company has recently been awarded a Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence.
The Puffin Island Wildlife Cruise is one of our 10 of the best boat trips, as featured in the August issue of Welsh Coastal Life. Click here to find your nearest stockist, or for past issues of Welsh Coastal Life click here.
