I am going to Saundersfoot with my wife from 5th -12th May. Please could you advise me on the best boat trips? My wife is a "accepting" companion but not the keenest birder.
I fancy at least one boat trip to see the local seabirds and choughs. When we have holidayed in the Scotland Islands, Manx Shearwaters were observable during the day is this not the case around the Welsh coast?
I anticipate travelling to St David's and the Marloes.
Recomendations regarding boat trips most welcome

Thanks for all your replies, I have been on the various web sites but there was a very wide choice available.
Thanks Allan last year (March) I followed your excellent advice re the Lily Ponds at Bosherton where we saw Choughs on the Stackpole Warren and a bittern in the reed beds by one of the ponds.
I think my wife will prefer to cruise round Skomer Island rather than land, so once again I will take your advice.
Has anyone undertaken the longer and more expensive trip to Grassholm Island and is it good value?
