Seal Pup Trips
The seal season is now underway with a few pups born already.
We are delighted to offer you a chance to see the pups up close with a landing trip onto Staple Island. This trip will be 2.5 hours long with 1 hour on the Island.
You will be guided by the National Trust staff around the Island giving you a talk about the seals and what they do to look after the seals. They will also take you close to the new born pups where you will get the opportunity to get a photograph or two.
This trip is only in it's second year so it's a great chance to come along and join us.
The price of the trip is £13 an Adult and £9 a Child and this is for your boat. You will also have to pay a landing fee of £10 an Adult and £5 a Child and this is payable to the National Trust on the Island. If you are a member of the National Trust you will still have to pay the landing fee as this is a special event.
We have limited spaces on the boats and only one boat is allowed on the Island at one time.
The Island will only be open when we have our first seal pup and the most important thing is the welfare of the pups. We will also only be able to land if the weather is good.
Please wear good shoes as you will be walking on rough ground. Warm clothes are a must at this time of the year and please don't forget your camera's or you will regret it.
You have to remember this is a special event and the seal pups are the most important thing. We are on their Island so please don't stray away from the group.
