Ilfracombe Princess Wildlife Cruises

Fun for all ages

Relax and unwind on a spectacular wildlife and coastal cruise on board the Ilfracombe Princess, a large modern comfortable passenger vessel, new in 2005 and purpose built to sail close to the coast. She is licensed for up to 100 passengers.  Come and enjoy one of the most dramatic coastal landscapes in England with immense seascapes and the highest cliffs in Britain as well as frequent sightings of Seals, Porpoises and Dolphins. Sail through our Marine Conservation Zone unspoilt by modern development, see waterfalls, lighthouses, mines, secluded hamlets and picturesque historic cob villages. Unique views of Damien Hirst’s Verity and the theatre.

Don’t forget to bring your camera and binoculars.  We sail daily to the East on the Exmoor cruise or to the West on the Seals cruise from Easter to the end of October usually with 2 or 3 sailings a day, lasting 1 of 1.5 hours each with a running commentary (weather permitting). There are 3 viewing decks including an upper viewing deck and undercover shelter, cushioned seating and toilets.. Look for our bright yellow leaflets for more information.  Private parties and coach parties welcome with group discounts.

Book at the Pier Kiosk near Verity or through Ilfracombe TIC.
