I'd say let's plan to arrive for 10:00 and be on the water for 10:30

happy to go with the flow HP, but just see how the day goes, last couple of months have made a big difference for me, but I don't want to knock myself about too much 😉

well worth downloading the chartlets from the Caernafon Harbour Trusts website for the Swellies & Caernarfon Bar 👍

Happy days Chris. Doubt we'll head right round. Go go juice ain't cheap! The best of the boating is Pilots cove to Conwy anyway, bar a few isolated places.

Been round Anglesey a few times now and I have never found it calm enough to go under the bridge at South Stack.

I'm sure that it must happen sometime...

i think what made it worse ed, is how many wildlife 'spotters' were there to shake their heads in horror at you
hp, the skerries is best with only one or two boats, and when you can sit there for a while, like stopping for your dinner - thats when the seals will come and swim right next to the boat. too many boats and you very often wont see any. my favourite time to be there is a summer evening LW as the sun is going down - deafening noise from all the sea birds and seals everywhere!
