Puffin Trip

Visiting Puffins around the Ascrib Islands

90 minute trip to the Ascrib Island to visit the Puffin breeding colonies and the resident seals (common seals and grey seals). There is a wide variety of seabirds around the islands including guillemots, gannets, razorbills, shags, graylag geese, etc.  With a bit of luck we might even see the largest bird of prey - the majestic white tail sea eagle.

In addition to the puffins, the Ascrib Islands offer fantastic west coast scenery and the resident common and grey seal populations. The Islands are also designated as a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) under the European Union's Habitats Directive (92/43/EEC).
