4 Hour Wildlife Cruises

4 hour trips

You will spend your trip exploring the southern coast of Cornwall as we sail under the impressive granite cliffs, and search for the wild animals which inhabit this region of the British Isles, including huge basking sharks, harbour porpoises, bottlenose dolphins, grey seals and a diversity of coastal birds. We then spend some time offshore in search of pelagic species such as common dolphins, minke whales and storm petrels.
Four hour excursion:

Adults: £58

(If there are only two people on board, it is just £75 per adult for the 4 hour cruise, as this is the minimum number we can take to run a cruise)

Children (up to 16 years): £45

Trip information:
We meet outside the marina reception at Premier Marina, Falmouth, at 10:50am, returning around 3:30pm, but some sailing times may vary depending on weather and tides. Car parking in the marina is free all day. On booking over the phone you will receive all the details you need to know about your trip. On all of our wildlife trips advertised, if for any reason the weather becomes too rough to leave the Carrick Roads and head offshore, we will still carry on with the trip but head back up the Carrick Roads and explore our wonderful and wildlife rich Fal estuary, where seals and bottlenose dolphins can be seen. Please bring warm clothes and full waterproofs, particularly during the colder months, and binoculars if you have them.

Wonderful day out. Saw porpoise, seals and a wide range of birds. The contrast between the sea trip and the Fal estuary made it extra special. Already planning our next trip over the summer.

In The Event of Rough Weather

On all our wildlife trips advertised if for any reason the weather becomes too rough to leave the Carrick Roads and head offshore, we will still carry on with the trip but head back up the Carrick Roads and explore our wonderful and wildlife rich Fal estuary,where seals and bottlenose dolphins can be seen.

The Fal is the third deepest natural harbour in the World and has over sixty miles of coastline and beautifully wooded bankside shore within this vast diverse and rich in wildlife marine and estuary habitat.
