4 Hour Wildlife Cruises

4 hour trips

These are our most popular trips and are run almost daily throughout the year so please phone or email us to enquire about availability. You will spend your trip exploring the southern coast of Cornwall as we cruise under the impressive granite cliffs, and search for the wild animals which inhabit this region of the British Isles, such as 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.

Adults: £58

Note: If there are only 2 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 Falmouth Marina at 10:50am, returning around 3pm, 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. 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. Please bring warm clothes and full waterproofs, particularly during the colder months, and binoculars if you have them.

As a footnote, skuas, shearwaters, storm petrels and gannets are collectively known as pelagic seabirds. We meet outside the marina reception at Premier Marina, Falmouth. 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. Please bring warm clothes and full waterproofs, particularly during the colder months, and binoculars if you have them as well as plenty of food and water. If the conditions are too rough to head out to sea for the full 7 hours, we will either re-schedule the trip or shorten the length of trip to the standard 4 hours. We will give a full refund if we have to cancel.

Adults: £45

Note: Minimum of 4 people for the 3 hour wildlife cruises

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. These rivers are full of lots of wildlife and on board a boat is a beautiful way to explore the small creeks. A plethera of waders, deer and waterbirds can be seen – including red breasted merganser and black-necked grebes – as well as visits from our seals, inshore dolphins and porpoises.

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