A comfortable cruising vessel that takes you from Holyhead around the Isle of Anglesey

The Western Star is a converted 75ft Dutch Steel Beam Trawler issued with an 'MCA Category 2 Commerical Vessel Certificate' and has been professionally refitted to accommodate 10 people in comfort.

There are very comfortable and robust sleeping quarters in an open plan format to create the feeling of space. Individuals, couples or groups can be accommodated. There are 4 separate enclosures with 2 berths each, plus a 2 person cabin with en-suite meant for the crew generally. There is a total of 3 showers and 4 toilets on board.

A 4 night cruise circumnavigates the magical island of Anglesey. Holyhead is the start and finish point and the cruise operates from Thursday to Monday throughout the summer.

Meals are included although there are opportunities to eat on shore at various locations if you wish to. Unfortunately children under 12 cannot join this cruise unless they are part of a whole chartered voyage. 12-16 year olds need to be accompanied. No pets allowed. Secure car parking is available.

The cruise takes in the wildlife habitats of North and South Stack, Puffin Island, The Great Orme and The Skerries. Visit the iconic Castles and market towns of Caernarfon and Beaumaris. Marvel at the construction of Telford's Menai Suspension and Britannia Bridges as Western Star navigates her passage through the notorious swellies. Look out for a huge variety of sea birds and marine mammals including dolphins, seals, propoises and basking sharks.

Guests will be encouraged to wander around the vessel as they please. This includes the wheelhouse, galley, aft mess room, main saloon, and all deck areas including 360 degree viewing gallery.

Price is £185 per person per night, including house wines, beers and spirits. Each cruise is a 4 night duration. Not available during winter.
