Do you want to learn more about our oceans while also sailing along the beautiful coastline of Pembrokeshire and Snowdonia, with the possibility of taking in some places on the Irish coast too? Join us for a week under sail with marine social scientist Holly Griffin. This is also prime Puffin season, with the islands of Skomer and Skokholm en-route among the UK’s most important breeding locations, and a must for wildlife lovers!

During the week we’ll get everyone learning the ropes, sailing and navigating the boat, and also learn from Holly how the ocean is the engine of our planet, how it benefits us, and our impact upon it.

This is a unique opportunity to sail with both an experienced sailing crew and a knowledgeable ocean scientist in a friendly and welcoming environment. We pride ourselves in creating an inclusive programme where everyone is a valued member of crew, and you’ll find the boat becomes a home from home in no time!


The trip fee of £695 covers the cost of the boat, crew, all equipment and training you’ll need onboard, as well as food, fuel and gas for the week. Not included is your travel to and from the start/end points of the voyage and any expenses ashore, although these tend to very limited out in the wilds!

Please see this page for hints and tips about funding your trip if applicable.
