Ilfracombe Sea Safari

Join us for an unforgettable experience

We are the original and award winning Ilfracombe Sea Safari based at Ilfracombe harbour, lying along the beautiful North Devon coastline. Our Safaris depart daily from March through to October and are suitable for all ages.

We run two 10 metre HUMBER RIB’s: “Lundy Explorer” and “Pioneer”. They’re safe and stable vessels which we use to get you up close and personal with wildlife going along at speeds of up to 20 knots in complete comfort. We search for dolphins, seals, porpoises and more wildlife while you see the backdrop of our dramatic coastline of outstanding natural beauty.

We provide everyone with life jackets and recommend you dress according to the weather conditions so you can travel in complete safety and comfort. For those who do suffer with sea sickness we are the vessel for you, due the exceptional stability of our vessels it is highly unlikely you will become sea sick.

Ilfracombe Sea Safari are accredited as a Wildlife Safari Safe Operator. Both locally joint together Lundy Island/North Devon Biosphere Scheme and nationally as a member of the Wise Wildlife Safe operator scheme.

For all our safaris ranging from 30minutes to 4 hours or Lundy Island shuttles please go to the website or ask the TIC for more information to book.
