It was a really hot day ! too hot to take the children to the beach, so we decided to take them on a mini cruise to see the seals, they absolutely loved it, the Ilfracombe princess was clean with a toilet on board ( very handy with kiddies) commentary throughout the whole trip which was really good and informative, this in turn gave us ideas as to where to take the children next. you don't pay for the smaller children, so saved some money, would go there again.

Always go on a boat trip on the "Princess". We went on the longer trip this time. Lovely day with plenty of wonderful scenery and wildlife. The captain is very knowledgeable and is very interesting to listen to. For the majority of the trip the weather was lovely but is started to rain almost at the end of the trip. There is plenty of room inside so no one got wet. But that's British Summer for you.

We booked the hour and a half Coastal scenic trip, it was a gorgeous sunny day and really enjoyable.
The captain is very knowledgeable and pointed out many things of interest throughout the journey with ample opportunity to take lots of photo's.
Well priced, comfortable and safe would definately recommend it :D

A good boat trip, taking in the coastline towards Woolacombe and all the little coves which we already planned to walk to so nice to see from a different view. Dissaponting not to see any wildlife, just the head of one seal bobbing in the water and a cormorant. That's wildlife for you !! very informative trip on a nice boat.
