Couldn't pass by when it was only £3 each. The staff were awesome, polite and helpful. There were a few decent waves that just made the trip more fun. Highly recommended. Wouldn't mind returning for one of the longer trips.

A short but pleasant trip through the harbour and along the coast a short way before turning around. Skipper and crew were friendly and good value at £3.00 for 20 mins giving you some good views

A wonderful trip out into the bay. Great value - only £3 for a 20 minute trip. The staff were friendly and the skipper gave a nice commentary. Will definitely do it again.

You cannot go wrong at £3 for a 20 minute boat ride, with children under 5 going free. The trip heads up the coast and turns round just short of Sandsend. There is a commentary which points out things of interest. We could get the gist though some of it was drowned out by the flapping flags on the boat.... More

A pleasant and informative 25 mins boat cruise for just £3 per person allows a different perspective on Whitby harbour and the Yorkshire coast towards Sandsend. A pleasant trip which allows even more photographic opportunities of this very pretty harbour and surrounding area. Look out for the yellow boat - informative commentary provided and landmarks identified.

Never been on a boat like this before so it was a new experience for me, my boyfriend and mam. We picked a bad time to go cause the wind started to pick up and it started to rain but this made it more exciting as the boat was rocking ALOT haha

Paid 20 pounds for a,Two hour trip looking for whales. Absolutely brilliant. Didn't fund any whales but saw seals and porpoise. Captain obviously had a great knowledge of local wildlife and gave all kinds of inform. So good we will do it again before we have to leave the area

My son, his children, partner and I when't on the Summer Queen for a boat ride, which was fantastic on its own but the cherry on the cake is when we saw a whale, thanks to the captain and crew for a really enjoyable trip. Would recommend.

We travelled an hour to Whitby for the sole prlurpose of going on this particular boat trip. We arrived around 11 and the sign stated the next trip wasn't until 1.30. We went and had a look around and had some food. I never had a watch on me so guessed the time and we returned. There were 2 crew... More
