Paddle the Pembrokeshire coast!
A Kayak tour around the bay reveals an old stone fort built to protect the area from pirates and a variety of marine life. Where the harbour meets the open sea, paddlers are rewarded with views of the Pembrokeshire coast towards Dinas Head, a rugged coastline of towering cliffs and caves. Fishguard Bay is a place of natural beauty and tranquillity. The deep bay, surrounded by high cliffs, offers calm seas and natural protection from Pembrokeshire’s characteristic coastal winds and waves – the perfect place to go kayaking. We'll kit you out with toasty wetsuits and equipment to keep you warm happy and afloat. Then after a quick safety briefing, we'll hop on the kayaks (single and tandems available). Next a practice and a play before heading off around our sheltered coastline talking about local history and marine life. Paddling into the secluded bays and caves that can be found on the Pembrokeshire coast is a great experience not to be missed. All our tours are tailored to the group and the weather to maximise enjoyment. Great for couples and groups of friends. Your photo memories are free and included in the cost of the experience. The email that you add to your medical waiver is where your photos will be sent to. Hop on a sea kayaking tour with us and we’ll take you off the beaten track to hidden coastlines, beautiful sandy beaches, remote caves and wildlife utopias.

Alpaca & farm walk in Snowdonia
Our guests arrive on site, and after the “human” introductions we proceed to the alpacas, where before entering the enclosure guests are briefed on how to behave around the animals, how to handle them, and a general safety talk concerning been on a farm with loose animals. They will then come and meet the alpacas, hand feed them and learn about the history of the alpaca species with facts and information while they can also get hands on and handle the animals. Then we halter up and after practicing leading the guests then lead the alpacas around the farm, meeting the various farm animals here, depending on the time of year this can include hand feeding, bottle feeding lambs/goats kids, photo opportunities with the pigs/cattle/sheep. Whilst walking any wildlife is pointed out, along with natural features ( mountains, peat bog, ancient oak woodland). We also talk about the various farm animals, benefits of the free range systems of care, and answer any questions. We then continue the walk back to the other alpacas, before letting the herd back out. At this point guests can enjoy a drink, or are welcome to bring a picnic and can watch the alpacas at leisure, grazing and playing. At all points the guide is there to answer any questions, and tell people information about all the animals and nature. Please note this experience is only for people over 9 years old.
Miniature Donkey Walk with a Picnic
A private session just for you, you and a friend or partner, or your family group! It includes up to 4 people but you can attend alone if you want - Do enquire though for larger groups though. After meeting the donkeys, you groom them, pop on their little panniers and we'll walk with one or two lead reins on each donkey depending on group size & condfidence of the walkers. This is a micro-group experience, spending a lot of time getting to know the donkeys. We walk for about 30 minutes to a scenic picnic point with panoramic views towards Pen y Fan and the Central Beacons. The walk is fairly easy, through some woodland and then open hilltop meadow with a bit of uneven ground and gentle inclines with one or two steeper parts but we take our time and never rush anyone. There are easier walks we can also do, especially if wet or very muddy. The picnic is a light snack meal, usually with crisps, cake, granola bars, fruit and a drink (we can accommodate differing food intolerences with enough notice) During the picnic, the dinkeys graze nearby and you can pet them or just relax with the view. The walks generally start at either 10am or 2pm and last 90 mins - 2 hours. If your preferred date or start time isn't shown, do get in touch to see whether we can add in a another date or start time to suit you. Sorry but no dogs on this experience as the donkeys are scared of them
