Seal Island in St Ives
Heading from the harbour we round the Western side of St Ives in the direction of Lands End. We soon pass St Ives landmarks such as The Island, St Ives Head, Porthmeor Beach and the Tate gallery. Our trip “five points West” is approximately 3.5 miles following the rugged Cornish cliffs and coves onward to Seal Island.
Along the way keep lookout for the local wildlife. Dolphin sightings have become more frequent as both common and bottlenose dolphins pass the bay. A wide array of sea birds are seen and less often sharks and even whales are spotted.
