Things To Do

FALCON BOATS

Falcon Boats are delighted to have the opportunity to team up with the Tour of Pembrokeshire to offer some of our wildlife boat trips with a difference. We really enjoy being involved in this fabulous event that, as well as being a physical challenge, promotes getting out and enjoying Pembrokeshire’s breathtaking scenery.

We are a small wildlife boat tripping company that are passionate about sharing Pembrokeshire’s beautiful islands, coastline and stunning wildlife with our visitors. We are dedicated to responsible and ethical wildlife watching working closely with the RSPB and Sea Watch Foundation. With over 20 years experience of running wildlife trips, we know the environment and its species intimately, so not only do we know the best places to find them but also the signs to look out for to ensure we do not disturb them.  After the 2018 event, some of the Tour’s organising team enjoyed a few hours with us, they learnt lots and plan to do the same after next year’s event.
