1 Hour Seal Cave Experience for Two Adults and Two Children
Add to Basket
Head out on the water for an amazing trip down the coast of Northern Cornwall. Your Seal Cave experience for Two Adults and Two Children is a safari of the sea that the whole family can enjoy. You will have the chance to see other creatures as well as seals including birds like guillemots and razorbills. In the summer the cliffs are decorated with hoards of birds. You might even be lucky enough to spot a dolphin along your hour-long journey in a rigid inflatable boat.
The ‘seal caves’ and Gulland Island are inhabited by a small population of greys seals. They might curiously pop their heads out of the water to see what’s going on, or you may find them lying on the rocks, soaking up the sun. Make sure you take a camera as there will be plenty of opportunities to take photos of the wildlife and the local attractions including Trevose Head lighthouse and Padstow lifeboat station. On the journey back the skipper will ramp up the speed for an exciting ride on the water.

What happens on the day?
When you arrive at Padstow Harbour you will head south out of the Camel Estuary and make your way to the ‘seal caves’. Here you should be able to spot grey seals as they pop up out of the water or sun themselves on the rocks. Take in the gorgeous sights that surround you and see what other animals you can spot.
Your friendly guide will point out all the local sites of interest as well as any creatures you come across, unless you spot them first! Perhaps you’ll see a dolphin or the puffins on ‘Puffin Island’? After an hour at sea you’ll head back to the harbour with a camera full of great snaps

- The experience content, equipment used and restrictions may vary
This experience is available on selected dates throughout the year.
We recommend you book at least four to six weeks in advance to ensure that dates are available. All bookings are subject to availability.
Aim to arrive 30 minutes before your trip is due to leave.
The time your 1 hour trip is booked for is the time the boat will leave the harbour so arrive in plenty time.
Remember to allow time to find parking as the carpark at Padstow harbour is notoriously busy, especially during peak summer weeks.
Please note bookings will be available from September 2020.

The centres contracted with us hold public liability insurance. We also hold contingency liability cover. You will not be liable for accidental damage to equipment, except where damage has been caused as a result of recklessness or wilful negligence.
