1. Spot puffins, seals and dolphins in Wales
Throughout the year, the islands of Ramsey and Skomer, off the coast of St. David’s in Pembrokeshire, provide shelter for an impressive 24,000 puffins, 80,000 gannets, hundreds of Atlantic grey seals, common dolphins, harbour porpoise and even the odd whale. In fact, the Welsh coastline is teeming with seabirds and marine mammals. Puffins can be seen nesting from May to late July, while cute seal pups appear from August onwards. Falcon Boats, run by local marine expert Ffion Rees, organises specialist rib boat tours along this wild, stunning coastline.
