Seal Spotting at St Mary's

Join us and explore St Mary's Island by kayak. The island and nearby clifftop reserve is a coastal nature reserve, providing a unique habitat for many species of coastal birds. It is also an important haul-out site for Grey Seals. As well as an abundance of wildlife, the surrounding waters contain ship wrecks, islands, reefs and cliffs that we can get amongst and explore in our kayaks. During the tour we usually land on one of the smaller islands or the less sensitive areas of shoreline for hot chocolate and cookies.
