Skomer Online Booking System – Launch Date!

We are delighted to announce that the new pre-booking system for Skomer Island day visits will be LIVE from Tuesday 13th April 2021!

The need to manage the flow of visitors safely through our Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales (WTSWW) Lockley Lodge Visitor Centre at Martin’s Haven and onwards to Skomer Island has led to the introduction of an online booking system.

Impacts on Skomer Island booking of social distancing

As the need for social distancing continues traditional queues at WTSWW’s Lockley Lodge must be discouraged and it is hoped that by ensuring tickets are purchased in advance the queues will not materialise. Guests will still be able to visit Lockley Lodge (SA62 3BJ) as they will need to ‘check-in’ at least one hour before their allocated departure time.

Limited numbers

At the time of writing it is clear that fewer people will be allowed on each boat and this will reduce the overall number of visitors to the island on any one day. Tickets will not be transferrable or allowed for resale and there will be a maximum number of 6 tickets available per customer. 

Requirements for larger numbers of tickets will be dealt with on a case by case basis, please contact islands@welshwildlife.org for further information. Please note that this email address is not monitored daily so please allow time for a response.

Buy your tickets online

Tickets can be booked through the Pembrokeshire Islands website where further information is available. Sailings will commence when Welsh Government guidance allows.
