Rob and Dolan provided a fantastic morning of fishing for our family (including 3 boys 6, 8 and 11) around Puffin Island. We were lucky with the October weather and headed out in calm seas to catch dozens of fish. It was a lovely experience with very friendly crew who knew where the fish were. We ate the mackerel at home later in the day and they were delicious! I cant wait to have the opportunity to head out with Starida again.

What can you say about captain Stan.
Character comes to mind!
New tv star in the making and a fountain of facts with it.
I found it quite funny as the sea was a little choppy on the day and every time we hit a higher wave Stan would say ,( under his breath) oops splash !.
A great 90 mins out, and even though it's late season still saw some seals and birdlife.
Very relaxing.

Amongst our 5 days in North Wales this was one of the best trips out. Luckily the weather was quite reasonable.
The sail out to Puffin Island on the boat " Island Princess" was relaxing, breathing in some fresh sea air. The scenery from the boat is outstanding. The skipper was very jolly, and very knowledgeable about the sea & surrounding land bordering the Menai Estuary. He gave out a lot of useful & interesting information during his commentary, and at Puffin Island turned the boat around in different directions so that everyone could take photographs of the birds & seals.
The trip lasted approx. an our and a quarter, and was well worth the money (slight discount for concessions). Would certainly recommend this trip if weather reasonable.
