Just like you all we were very excited to kick off the season on the 1st April.  We are now really sad to say that following the recent advice from the government surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak, Thousand Islands Expeditions will not be opening for boat trips on the 1st April this season.  The health and wellbeing of our visitors, staff and community are of the utmost importance to us and this decision is in response to increasing concerns.
We will keep monitoring the situation and we will let you know as soon as we have the all clear to operate again.  We will be posting on our web site blog, facebook, twitter and instagram so keep in touch.
We can’t wait until the day we can see you all again, look after yourselves.
From all the Thousand Islands Expeditions Skippers, crew and booking office ladies and gents.


Take a boat trip and visit the Pembrokeshire Islands of Ramsey, Skomer or Grassholm and witness some of the most powerful currents in Britain, pass beneath some of the highest sea cliffs in Wales, see spectacular breeding colonies of hundreds of nesting seabirds.

Discover a magical island wilderness coupled with the fun and excitement of a true marine adventure.

Ramsey Island is home to one of the UK's largest Atlantic Grey Seal colonies, hundreds of seal pups are born on Ramseys beaches from late August to October.

Harbour Porpoise feed in the fast currents in Ramsey Sound. Venture offshore to see the gannets on Grassholm Island, home to over 37,000 pairs of breeding gannets. Join our wildlife guide on a dolphin watching boat trip offshore and if you are lucky a sighting of a whale or take a trip over to Skomer Island to watch the Puffins.

Boat trips leave from the RNLI Lifeboat Station at St Justinians which is also an interesting place to visit.
