St Davids Jet Boat Trips - Book by Telephone or Online

Sorry the 2016 jet boating season is over. We look forward to relaunching in spring 2017. 

The office is open all year but we do not run boat trips in winter. Please see website and Facebook for launch details.

To book please call us on +44 (0)1348 837764 or 0800 0854 786 (free from any UK landline).

Trips may also be booked online here or by emailing us at at info@venturejet.co.uk and paying via Paypal (you do not need to have a Paypal account).

We do our best to match passengers to like-minded passengers and appropriate sea conditions so we offer Family trips suitable for everyone and Adult trips for adults and older children. We will be happy to discuss which trip would be most suitable given your interests and the prevailing forecast.

This is a unique experience. Places are limited so early booking is advisable to ensure the trip and time of your choice.

Boat Departure Points and Map: St Justinian and Whitesands beach, St Davids

Most trips depart from St Justinian (SA62 6PY or OS grid ref: SM724252) but we can do beach trips from Whitesands beach (SA62 6PS or OS grid ref: SM733272) in the school summer holidays. We can operate from Whitesands (or other locations) at any time by prior arrangement subject to sea and weather conditions. 

 

Our Ramsey Island boat trips run from St Justinian and Whitesands beach, St Davids. Please see our Photo Gallery for images of boarding and departure points.

We generally operate from St Justinian, the St Davids lifeboat station. The boat will be brought alongside a slipway; you do not need to wade out to the boat. Please note: there are over 50 concrete steps (with a handrail) to walk down to the slip at St Justinian. Please see our St Justinian photo gallery for detailed images of the steps, slipways and the lifeboat station. If you have any difficulty walking please let us know so that we can discuss whether or not St Justinian is an option for you. Parking at St Justinian itself is very limited. If there is no space in the lay-bys at the end of the road (common at busy times) there is a pay and display parking field about 10 minutes' walk from the harbour.

Whitesands Beach Jet Boat Trips, St Davids (School Summer Holidays)

At Whitesands beach we bring the boat into shallow water (approximately knee depth); you will need to wade out to board. We are the only boat company to operate beach trips from Whitesands. 

Car park, toilet and shop facilities are next to the beach, which is part of the Pembrokeshire coast path.

If you have difficulty walking there are all terrain wheelchairs at Whitesands which can go across the beach and into shallow water. We will do everything we can to assist you to board but we are unable to physically lift passengers. If you have significant mobility issues Whitesands is the most accessible boarding point but we need to plan carefully. Please call us so that we can discuss the best tidal and weather conditions to suit your needs. 

The Celtic Coaster bus (no.403) runs to both Whitesands and St Justinian from St Davids from Easter to September and can accommodate 2 wheelchairs.

Passengers are asked to be at the departure point ready to sign in at least 15 minutes before their trip in low season and 30 minutes before in high season (summer school holidays).

Do please allow yourselves lots of time to get to the departure point and park; holiday periods can be really busy. We regret that we cannot take responsibility for passengers being late: out of respect for other passengers we cannot wait longer than 15 minutes.

Medical Declaration

You will be asked to sign a form confirming that you have no medical condition or injury which could affect your enjoyment or safety on the boat or which could be adversely affected by boating activities (eg back problems or pregnancy). If in doubt please consult a doctor. Please advise us of any medical condition or injury we need to know about when booking.

Sea and weather conditions can change quickly. Passengers are requested to check for messages on the contact number they have given to us. We will always do our best to contact passengers but we cannot take responsibility for messages not being received eg due to loss of signal. If in doubt please call the office the morning of your trip for your own convenience to confirm departure point and time.

Please always wear warm waterproof clothing and bring spare trousers, socks and shoes to put on after the trip. This is particularly important for 'Wet and Wild' and 'Jet Therapy' trips and any trip running from the beach, where you might get caught by a cheeky little wave when wading out. If you have booked a civilised Wildlife Adventure we will endeavour to keep you as dry as possible but there’s always a possibility of spray on an open boat. If you have booked a 'Wet and Wild' or 'Jet Therapy' then getting a bit wet (or a lot!) comes with the territory!

We can provide additional fleeces and waterproof jackets for both adults and children (free of charge).

  • Inboard and tube seating is available.
  • You are welcome to bring cameras and binoculars (at your own risk) but please bring protective bags.
  • The crew will fit lifejackets for everyone, give you a safety briefing and answer any questions you may have.
  • The boat and skippers are fully licensed by the Marine Coastguard Agency and follow international codes of conduct to protect wildlife.

Dogs and Ramsey Island Jet Boat Trips

Most trips do not have dogs on board but we welcome well behaved dogs free of charge on our trips subject to appropriate sea conditions. Please call us in advance to discuss arrangements for your canine family member.

If you are nervous of dogs or allergic to them please tell us when booking.
