Puffin Island Boat Trips

The popular Puffin Island cruise includes panoramic views of the Snowdonia Mountain Range and Penmon Lighthouse. On arrival you can observe over twelve species of sea birds including Puffins, Guillemots, Cormorants and Kittiwakes. At the eastern end of the island there are more photo opportunities with a large colony of grey seals.

Also here are the ruins of the old semaphore signalling station, one of a chain that signalled news of ships arrival to Liverpool.

A ship called the Rothesay Castle, on a day trip from Liverpool, sank near Puffin Island in 1831. A lighthouse (which can be seen in the above photograph) and a lifeboat station were built here soon after.
 
The island has a number of ruins of medieval monastic buildings, including the tower of a 12th century church. It is said that St. Seiriol is buried here, and perhaps also King Maelgwn Gwynedd who was once ruler of North Wales.
 
The boat trip takes approximately 1 hour
