Quote:Re-reading this thread I think that I will visit Flamborough Head sometime early June almost certainly from a Monday to Thursday or Friday; I also like the idea of the boat trips from Bridlington to see the Gannets diving.

If you want to do the boat trip you need to book ASAP it gets fully booked pretty quickly, think its around 65 for a 3 hour trip. They feed the gannets so getting shots of them diving is near enough 100% guaranteed, think Steve Race runs the workshop for this expedition.

I booked several months ago for a gannet diving trip on 18th June, with 2 nights B&B in case the weather is bad and the trip is delayed 1 day.
One challenge with the boat trip is getting a B&B prepared to serve breakfast before 5.30 am as the best boat leaves Bridlington harbour at 6 am Sad
The boat trips are run by Steve Race of yorkshirecoastnature.co.uk

I have booked a stay for three clear days late May (my diary wouldn't let me do otherwise) at a B&B and also enquired re a Gannet Diving trip via email to Steve Race; I'll see if he has any space at this latish stage.
