Journey with us to view the stunning Cornish coastline and wild life.
Leaving every hour and fifteen minutes from St. Ives Harbour, at higher tides you transfer directly onto the Little Mermaid, lower tides require a short transfer via our skiff a smaller boat designed for shallower waters. The Little Mermaid is one of the larger vessels which offers plenty of space for everyone to see and sit comfortably.
Once aboard the Little Mermaid, we will travel to one of two destinations, Seal Island or Godrevy Lighthouse, chosen on the day by the highly experienced skipper based on weather conditions, sea state, and where we think you will get to spot more of the wildlife, along the way children love trying to catch the spray as we whizz down the coast.
While out on the water you may spot seals, dolphins, sharks, whales, and tuna as well as a variety of sea birds you may even spot a sunfish or two, identified by its large dorsal fin waving in the water.
Seal Island to the West of St. Ives lies on the north coast of Cornwall. It is the largest in a group of islands - known as the Western Carracks, home of the Atlantic Grey Seals who love to inhabit the island. Be sure to take in the stunning Cornish coastline on the way to our destination.
To the East of St. Ives lies Godrevy Lighthouse, which stands 26 meters tall on its own island, it is a couple of hundred meters from the mainland. Godrevy Lighthouse is roughly the same distance from the port as Seal Island, on arrival we circumnavigate the lighthouse to marvel at the Victorian edifice. Skipper Ian will give you the history of the lighthouse, and opportunities to spot more wildlife.
These trips last about an hour.
