Coastal Schooner Experience

Coming soon to the Wales International Coastal Centre, the Coastal Schooner is sure to be a favourite midway point in the three new Interpretation Centres, suitable for all ages, exploring Saundersfoot's heritage, and the wider significance of the sea and our coastline.

Climb aboard a life-size Schooner, man the helm and climb the rigging. Just don't throw any men overboard!

Visitors will learn how the rise of the mining in the area meant the construction of Saundersfoot Harbour which was soon to be full of coal-laden ships for export globally. What was life like on board ship in the age of sail? What were the dangers? Where did they sail to? And what happened when some Pembrokeshire locals took to a life of piracy?

Also aboard is a cafe, and the chance to try out abseiling and rope climbing!


On the National Events Deck, Saundersfoot Harbour. The Coastal Schooner is wheelchair accessible.



The Coastal Schooner is planned for completion by Autumn 2021.
