We’re excited to be back with new sea safari trips for 2020 bringing back all the fun and keeping our customers and staff safe and happy.  

Whether you are booking as a couple or larger family/bubble, we’ve made it more affordable than ever to get on board and take to the sea in your own separate space!!  It’s more certainty, less sharing, less queueing and quayside shuffling.   

We’ve extended our 1 hour trips to 90 minutes too!  The perfect time at sea, less rush and more opportunity to enjoy the beautiful coastline and catch the wildlife.  We’re still departing safely from Rock or Padstow, our skippers will take you along the Camel Estuary and out onto the Atlantic. Our memorable journeys vary with conditions at sea but often offer views of Daymer Bay, Polzeath Beach, the Rumps, Pentire Head and Mouls Island. We travel as far as Tintagel and Boscastle too and regularly go to the fishing village of Port Isaac where Doc Martin is filmed and The Fisherman’s Friends gather…

 

ACCESS

We endeavour to make all of our boat trips accessible to everyone and is usually from a pontoon at Padstow or Rock. If you have any mobility issues please contact the office before booking and we can advise on the best time and departure point. During spring tides there is occasionally a walk along the beaches during low tide at both Padstow and Rock. Access onto our boats from the beaches is via a small household stepladder.

SKIPPERS

Our skippers are all well qualified local seamen who are versed in animal behaviour and habitats and will do their best to provide you with a commentary of any sightings. Additionally they are knowledgeable about our spectacular coastline including archaeological and geological features. Most of our skippers have either served as an RNLI team member or have participated in training exercises alongside them, so you’ll be in very safe hands. We have a compulsory life jacket policy for every person regardless of age.

Dogs are welcome at no extra charge but please be aware that not all dogs like boat trips.
