Puffin island - Lundy's iconic bird

Rising 400 feet out of the sea at the point where the Bristol Channel meets the Atlantic is Lundy Island, an outcrop of granite about three and a half miles long where some of Devon's most varied wildlife lives.

With everything from birds to basking sharks and sheep to seals, there's something for everyone - and your wildlife experience begins the moment you board the boat!

Isle of Coll

  • The Isle of Coll is a stunning wild retreat blessed with a wealth of flora and fauna. Its summer carpet of wild flowers is simply awesome.

"There are two great things about islands:

"A: We have loads of them. B: Most of them are great for wildlife and represent unique habitats with their own special mix of flora and fauna.


"So, no excuses get out there and see it all for your self."
