Boat trip to Skomer island

This short movie is aimed at anyone who is considering a trip to Skomer island a brief insight on what to expect before you reach the island all the footage recorded was shot using my Galaxy s3 so my apologies for the poor audio quality,the boat which took us over to the island is called the Dale Princess and is licensed to carry a total of 50 passengers.the journey over to the island is relatively short taking around 10-15mins and you will have good views of Puffin,Razorbill Guillemot etc on the water, upon arrival you will walk up a very steep slope to be greeted by the wardens who give a brief 10minute talk with regards to restrictions and what you will see on the island and after that it is basically up to you where you head keeping to the designated pathways of course,the only problem for me was the limited time on the island to try and capture some good images of the Puffin after the Warden`s talk around 10mins and then the walk to the Wick another 30mins where most of the Puffin are,so we had around 3hrs in total before we needed to head back for the arriving boat,for anyone just wanting to see the island`s bird that time scale is reasonable but for some bird photographer`that might not be the case,and a final note that even with the restrictions it is still worth the visit to see the wonderful Puffin up close.
