I don't think land and sea will put you in, it's the busiest weekend for them with all there park and launch customers. You could ask them of course, but don't just turn up expecting they will launch you

RIBase
Humber p4vwl

That's right I've got young kids who love towables etc they can only last about a hour on on rib before they start moaning for chips and drinks I like to be close to beach and go in and out also my wife doesn't like the rib she's more shore support with a good book.

Very true! Definitely ask first.

I've given up at pwhelli. I've been launching there for the last few years. It's changed hands from public to private and at the same time much of the space for car and trailer parking has gone. It was very chaotic there last year and I didn't get on the water last bank holiday. I down sized and now launch from abersoch main beach. The Gwynedd council staff are friendly. If you're early. There's plenty of space for car and trailer , but by midday everywhere has been full the last few weekends.
It costs 10 to launch and 5 to park.

Looks like the best option, get there really early doors whilst the wife and kids get ready for beach, launch the boat and have it on the beach anchored just off the shore ready for use in the day, then recover late on after the family leave and you've had a quick blast to the islands! ;-)

You'll be back once kids bathed and tea on the go! ;-) double bonus.

The main beach barrier is closed at 8pm and re opens at 9am. I know because I got there at 8am this week and had to wait until 9am for them to open the barrier. We launch from the beach and have done for the last 10years, check the tide times for the weekend you are there as you might be lucky for a morning high tide and be able to launch from the concrete slip

There used to launch facility at the warren but again very busy weekend you piled into car park and tractor fetched you and launched (for a fee) not sure on the deal now, llanbedrog might be another option but never launched there myself.
