Day Trips to Bardsey Island


DAY TRIPS TO BARDSEY ISLAND

 

Departing from Porth Meudwy, Aberdaron. 3 to 4 hours duration



New for 2009, Day Trips to Bardsey Island. Our business and boats are based on Bardsey, both because the island has the best harbour facilities for miles around, and a family connection with the island that goes back generations. We provide the official boat service for both the Bardsey Bird and Field Observatory and the Bardsey Island Trust, the charity which owns and administers the island. At last we are able to offer day trips over to Bardsey. We should be delighted to answer all types of questions about the place, as we are very proud of belonging to it.

This unique island still supports a living community, farming, fishing and looking after the visitors that come to stay in the Victorian farmhouses. It is renowned for its wildlife, particularly seabirds including the rare and long lived Manx Shearwater, and for its diversity of flora, but perhaps its most notable aspect is its spiritual and religious history centred around the 1500 year old abbey, the remains of which still stands.

You will have between 3 and 4 hours to explore the island, or more by arrangement. The sea journey there takes around 15 minutes. Please note there are no transport services on the island, though special arrangements can be made for those with walking difficulties. Also please bear in mind that Bardsey is a working island and not a tourist attraction, so please do not expect mainland type facilities or entertainment.
