Discover Cornwall’s stunning coastline and marine life

Choose where to begin your voyage!

We offer a number of ways for you to explore the dramatic, rugged coastline of North Cornwall. For both experienced sea-goers and first-time sailors, our boat trips get you up close and personal with Cornwall’s unique heritage and stunning array of wildlife; from dolphins to seals, puffins to peregrine falcons. If you want something on the exhilarating side, try a sea safari on one of our 12 seater, 10 metre powerboats. Or if you want to take your time and explore independently, our hop-on, hop-off ferries are for you.

We endeavour to make all of our services accessible to everyone.  However, if you have any mobility issues please contact the office before booking and we can advise on the best time and departure point to book a trip as these are forced to vary by tide levels.  



Get up close to wildlife from £25 per person

We offer one and two hour sea safaris on one of our 10-metre ribs, led by experienced, local seamen. Few people know this spectacular coastline better than they do, and most of them are RNLI team members, so you’ll be in very safe hands.

Setting off from Rock or Padstow, our skippers (helped by 2 x 175 horsepower engines) will take you up the stunning camel estuary and out into the Atlantic. The awesome journey will take in Daymer Bay, Polzeath beach, The Rumps, Pentire Head, the tranquil fishing village of Port Isaac and Puffin Island. Depending on the time of year you can expect to see Basking Sharks, Seals, Dolphins, Porpoises, Puffins, Gannets and many other varieties of seabirds.

Gift vouchers are also available to buy online.
