We had a fantastic day out at Skomer last week and certainly for many visitors this is the highlight of their week in Wales.

The bluebells were amazing!

If you stay at Old Oak Barn it will mean an early start to catch the ferry at Martins Haven but that is all part of the adventure. The crossing to Skomer only takes about 10 – 15 minutes.  The booking system has changed now and is much better in that as soon as you arrive you go to the award winning visitor centre Lockley Lodge and get your tickets for the boarding which will be from 10 O’clock onwards. There is a fee of approx £11 for the crossing and £10 for the landing so for £21 per adult it is not cheap but well worth it! SO if you catch the 12 noon ferry you can go for a walk to Deer’s Park for example and then just queue for the boat 10 minutes before departure.

SKomer Puffins and Bluebells

We can provide maps and directions for visitors wanting to explore this beautiful little island. Approx 1.5 miles across and 2 miles wide it is fairly tiring but where else can you see porpoises, puffins, short eared owls, guillemots, razorbills and of course big Skomer rabbits all in the same place! Visit Skomer and we don’t think you will be disappointed at all!
