The Ilfracombe Princess Cruises at Ilfracombe harbour

Attraction Information

The Ilfracombe Coastal Cruises provides spectacular wildlife and coastal trips aboard the Ilfracombe Princess which is the largest passenger vessel in Ilfracombe.  What makes it all the more special is that sometimes the kids are allowed to drive! Under close supervision of course...
The seals cruise, departing from Ilfracombe harbour takes you past Brandy Cove to Breakneck Point, from Fresh Waterfalls to Lee Village, past Bull Point Lighthouses and Rockham Bay and regularly provides sightings of the very cute seals around the area! This is a great trip for those with kids or just wildlife lovers in general and it's definitely worth taking binoculars and cameras along so long as they're securely tied to your person so they don't end up in the drink!
The Exmoor Bird Cruise passes Hele bay, Rillage Point, Samsons Cove, the Watermouth Harbour and Castle, Burrow Nose past Combe Martin Bay, Hangman's Hill, the Old Silver Mines and through to Sherracombe Waterfall with spectacular views of Exmoor and some great birdwatching opportunities on the way!
You can just pop into the booking office on the quay to sort your tickets or you might want to call them to ensure you get the time and day you are after, depending on how flexible you are! They have wheelchair access and are trained to asset disabled guests, they also have have facilities for storing pushchairs which is handy, plus loos and refreshments on board. Hooray!
