The Scenery is spectacular and the wildlife plentiful, here at Seacoast Safaris we believe in bringing people closer to the very best of Anglesey's wildlife.
Departing from Beaumaris heading towards the NE entrance of the Menai Straits we find Puffin Island, also known as Ynys Seiriol after the saint who founded a monastery on the island in the 6th century. Puffin Island is now a bird sanctuary and home to many species of breeding seabirds including guillemots, razorbill, puffins and kittiwakes to mention a few. Other species such as cormorant and shags are on the island year round, Puffin Island also plays home to a colony of grey seals. You my even be lucky enough to encounter porpoise, on occasion even dolphin are spotted.
As an alternative to Puffin Island we head out in the opposite direction down towards Menai Bridge with breath-taking scenery and awesome architecture. We will pass under the iconic bridges of Thomas Telford and Robert Stevenson and further on to Plas Newydd stately home. The Menai Straits plays home to an array of wildlife with plenty of wading and shore birds along its banks.
