SKOMER ISLAND WITH NATURESHIP – FULLY BOOKED
18th July 2019
If you love Puffins, you’ll love this. Join Olympus Mentors Geraint and Rob as they take you on a photographic adventure to Skomer Island; a unique wildlife haven less than a mile off the beautiful Pembrokeshire coast.
Join a small group and set sail for the magical island of Skomer where the air is filled with feathery magic as soon as you reach the bay. The Puffin is adorable and sometimes wanders so close that you can’t even focus. The aim of most is to catch one flying and hopefully with a beak full of Sandeels!
Even though the emphasis of the workshop is of course on the Puffin, there is far more to Skomer. Find an abundance of other birds, most of which allow you to get much closer than normal, as they do not fear man as much as on the mainland. Razorbill and guillemot are the other Auks seen, Short Eared Owls are often flying mid day, Oystercatcher, Raven, Fulmar, Gulls aplenty and a myriad of other birds.
The landscape is not to be missed and often has a wonderful carpet of bluebells, thrift or wild flowers depending on the the time of year.
Natureship consists of Olympus Mentors Geraint Radford and Rob Cottle. Both wildlife fanatics, vegan and totally committed to preserving and improving the welfare of ‘all’ animals, their workshops are built on ethical wildlife photography and wildlife always comes first. No live baiting, flash or paid-for hides are used and they believe that experiencing nature is just as important as the photography. Both have come together to offer workshops, tours and talks that wildlife lovers will enjoy and be comfortable with.
Price includes 5 hours on the island, landing fee and boat transfer (excludes car parking).

There is quite a steep set of steps on landing and can be quite taxing even for the fittest. There is little food and water on the island so please take some fluids, snacks and lunch with you. The Dale Princess is not always able to run due to weather conditions and this can change rapidly. We will inform you as soon as possible on the running of the boat and we will offer a re-booking or money back if it does not sail.
