From the Deer Park on the headland at Wooltack Point, just above the campsite, you can look westward to Skomer, one of West Wales' most picturesque islands, with its stunning and varied wildlife. From a sea strewn with rafts of guillemots, razorbills and puffins, to exposed headlands, towering offshore rocks and sheltered inlets, home to the birds and mammals of this amazing island Nature Reserve.
Just 10 minutes walk along the coast path from the campsite is Martins Haven, from here a 50-seater passenger boat, the Dale Princess, offers gentle cruises through the surrounding waters and bays of Skomer and also transports visitors to the Island.
Sailings are weather dependent with the final decision resting with the Boatman; decisions on sailing are made each day by 9.00am and are dependent on both conditions and forecast. A strong northerly wind will prevent departure from Martin’s Haven and access to Skomer landing.
