St Ives Boats - daily trips along the Cornish coast
Sea Safari to Seal Island
Our Seal Island boat trip is our most popular. Seal Island, (Western Carracks), lies 3½ miles (5.6km) West of St Ives, along the rocky Cornish coastline. Godrevy Island lies just over 3 miles (4.8km) to the East of St Ives. These rocky outcrops, near Zennor and Gwithian respectively are homes to colonies of Atlantic Grey Seals, where they feel safe, protected from predators and the forces of the Atlantic Ocean.

Dolly P holds a full license to comfortably accommodate up to 12 passengers, and we are delighted to offer private boat charters tailored to meet your specific preferences.
