St Ives Boat Trips

boat trips for everyone

St Ives Boats - daily boat trips along the Cornish coast

 Boat Trips depart daily, Easter to November, from St Ives Harbour, at all state of tides, if sea and weather conditions allow. Contact us for more info.

Sea Safari to Seal Island

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.

Two Hour Sea Safari Adventure

See so much more! Our longer safari provides varying destinations depending on wind, tide and the days wildlife sightings. From Portreath to Pendeen we can explore fascinating coastal sites including Hells Mouth, Godrevy Lighthouse and Seal Island or head out into deeper water to track larger wildlife. Don’t worry, there is a toilet onboard! 

Chat to crew Mike and Mike about their time sailing the world, rescuing marine wildlife and serving as lifeboat crew with the RNLI, all whilst seeing some of the UKs most stunning scenery and amazing wildlife.

Sea Fishing Boat Trips

A Sea fishing trip from an old Cornish fishing harbour is often high on the things to do list for a holiday in Cornwall. Join Ian and Dougie, both former commercial fishermen, on an hour and a half trip. The catch will vary but the crew know many of the best spots and even when the fish aren’t pumping have a wonderful array of fishing tales to keep you entertained.
