The Islands

Skomer, Skokholm and Grassholm Islands are internationally famous as the home of large numbers of seabirds; particularly puffins, razorbills, guillemots, fulmars, gulls, Manx shearwaters (Skomer and Skokholm), and gannets (Grassholm).

Passenger boats go from Martin’s Haven* daily, landing on Skomer (15 mins crossing). They also make round trips of Skomer (1 hour), and trips to Grassholm (3 hours). Alternatively, there are trips around all three islands in a large inflatable boat.
