Boat Trips, Sun 2 - Sun 30 Sep 2018

The Yorkshire Belle

The Yorkshire Belle

Details

As summer turns to autumn, this area offers fantastic opportunities to witness autumn migration. On this trip we sail up to three miles out into the North Sea on the famous MV Yorkshire Belle from Bridlington to look for seabirds such as shearwaters, skuas, divers, auks, gulls and terns, not forgetting marine mammals such as porpoises and seals. Chum is thrown overboard to bring the birds closer to the boat, offering good views and photographic opportunities of these often hard-to-see seabirds. For more information please visit: rspb.org.uk/bempton

Please note that the trip sets off on the Yorkshire Belle from Bridlington Harbour North Pier.

Additional Information: Drinks/Snacks available on the boat. No Dogs. Wear warm clothing.
