National Park Authority welcomes new boat trip buses

The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority has welcomed moves by boat trip operators and the RSPB to provide sustainable travel solutions for visitors heading from St Davids to St Justinian and on to Ramsey Island.

Thousand Islands Expeditions and Voyages of Discovery are trialling a joint bus service from St Davids to St Justinian for their passengers, while Aquaphobia is offering parking in St Davids and transport to St Justinian in the price of their boat trips.

The Celtic Coaster shuttle bus stops at St Justinian every half an hour between 26 May and 2 September.​

These services complement the existing daily public Celtic Coaster shuttle buses, which are part of the network of coastal buses provided by Pembrokeshire County Council with contributions from the National Park Authority. 

The Celtic Coaster’s route stops at St Justinian every hour from now up to 30 September, increasing to every half an hour between 26 May and 2 September.

Hop on one of the Celtic Coaster buses if you’re using one of the other boat operators or wish to visit the coast, the RNLI lifeboat station or the Pembrokeshire Coast Path National Trail. 

Falcon Boats ​provide free tickets for the Celtic Coaster in the price of their boat trips.​

Park Authority Director of Planning, Jane Gibson said: “We are delighted that these boat operators together with the RSPB have taken the opportunity to introduce sustainable travel plans for their visitors.

“We are hopeful this is the first step towards a long term sustainable travel solution, which will benefit the local economy and also respect the special qualities of this much-loved corner of the National Park, reducing traffic congestion which spoils the natural beauty of the area and our visitors’ experience.”

Greg Morgan, RSPB Ramsey Site Manager added: “While we are happy to support the move to reduce traffic congestion on the road to St Justinian and investigate if park and ride provision will work in this area, we view this very much as a trial process.”
