If you would like to take a day trip to Skomer Island, it’s a short drive along the coast road from Broad Haven south to Marloes and then to the National Trust carpark at Martin’s Haven. From there, you can catch the Dale Princess which runs several trips a day. It’s about a 20 minute boat trip each way.
However, you do need to get to Martin’s Haven early – particularly in school holidays – as there can be queues for the boat. Even on a fine day, it’s best to take some warm clothing in case of sea mist. You’ll be on the island for several hours before the boat returns to pick you up in the afternoon.
