Boat Trips

Discover Cornwall's Stunning Coastline and Wildlife

You’ll see our boats cruising through the bay from Atlantic House

Safari Trips

We offer various ways for you to explore the dramatic, rugged coastline of North Cornwall. Whether you are a first-time or experienced sailor, our boat trips take you along Cornwall’s unique coastline to look for a stunning array of wildlife.

Depending on the Seasons, this may include puffins (spring through to early summer) peregrine falcons, dolphins, seals, minke whales, sei whales, jellyfish, sunfish, and porpoises.

On beautiful sunny days when the ocean is crystal clear, you can spot lobsters crawling along the ocean bed in the shallow waters of seal caves. Our twin-engine 400hp boats offer an exhilarating outdoor adventure on either a 1-or 2-hour safari and coastal tour.

Destination

Departing from Rock or Padstow, our skippers will take you along the Camel Estuary and out onto the Atlantic. This memorable journey offers views of Daymer Bay, Polzeath Beach, the Rumps, Pentire Head and Mouls Island.

On our 2-hour trip, we can travel as far as Tintagel, Boscastle and regularly go to the fishing village of Port Isaac where Doc Martin is filmed and is the home of The Fisherman’s Friends, a traditional group singing songs of the seas for charity. For returning customers who have already experienced this route, we can also head southwest to Mother Ivy’s Bay and the Padstow lifeboat station.

The North Cornwall coastline is registered by Natural England as an area of outstanding natural beauty (AONB).

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 a 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.
