    Gannet Photography holiday Details

    [/is_singular]The NaturesLens Gannet Photography holiday is ideal for those photographers wishing to add more great seabird images to their portfolio. Commencing in Pembroke Dock, Wales, this wildlife photography holiday immediately transports the participants across to Southern Ireland to photograph the gannet colony of the Saltee Islands. Whilst in Southern Ireland, our clients, accompanied by a NaturesLens guide will have three full days amongst the gannet colony.

    Northern Gannet of the type that may be photographed within the Saltee Islands colonies - Gannet Photography Holiday

    The Saltee Islands are a family-owned, nature reserve situated approximately 5 kms from the beautiful County Wexford coast. The islands were once a magnet for pirates & smugglers, now however they are rightly famous as one of the best Irish bird sanctuaries for their impressive selection of twelve species of seabirds which have made the islands their home. During our trip we will be able to see the colonies of the Gannets, Razorbills & even more Puffins! As well as the islands being perfect places for photography & bird watching, they are also a place with outstanding marine & animal life! The surrounding waters of the islands are one of the prime sites for Grey Seals in Ireland, with the species breeding roughly 120 pups between August & December. The Saltee Islands are also regarded as a hotspot for whale & dolphin watching, given a perfect view of the sea from the cliffs. During summer months, it is possible to spot species such as Risso Dolphins, Harbour Porpoises & occasionally Orca.

    This photography holiday includes the following elements: visiting Southern Ireland, accommodation on a bed & breakfast & evening meal basis, transportation & ferry costs & boat trips whilst visiting the Saltee Islands.
