What should I wear?
Warm and waterproof! It’s always colder out on the water and it can get very windy so we always advise bringing extra layers. Powerboat trips can, by nature, be wet. We advise you wear warm clothing, suitable footwear (trainers or lightweight walking boots) and a waterproof coat. You may wish to bring waterproof trousers and gloves/hat (particularly for winter trips). It can get very bright out on the water, so sunglasses are recommended. If it’s particularly sunny, suncream is advised.
- Binoculars – we’ll do our best to get you as close as possible to the wildlife (without disturbing nesting birds), but you may wish to bring binoculars for a close-up view
- Camera – our trips take place in a truly stunning part of Anglesey and we will encounter lots of wildlife and scenic spots along the way so there will certainly be some incredible photo opportunities. You’re welcome to bring a camera along but you do so at your own risk
- Bags – there is limited space on the boat so you’re welcome to bring small bags but please don’t bring larger items with you
Please note – if you are not appropriately dressed you may not be allowed on board due to your own safety.
When is the best time to go on a trip?
The beauty of the Menai Strait is that it changes throughout the year. Each season brings something new to Anglesey’s spectacular coastline. If you want to see puffins, visit us between March and August for the best chance to spot some of these majestic little fellows.
