Coastal Cruises sail south past Robin Hoods Bay to the seal colony at Ravenscar. Enjoy our stunning coastline and see the fabulous seals who come up to the boat to watch us! Weather allowing, we swing further out for the trip back. Lots of opportunities to see wildlife, birds and from May onwards the possibility of sighting a whale!
Staithes Cruises sail to this picturesque village which allows passengers an hour ashore to explore. Enjoy beautiful scenery on the journey.

Sunset Trips – The sun both rises and sets in the sea here at Whitby during the summer. Enjoy a 45-minute cruise to see the sun go down.

Twilight cruise – sailing at dusk as the sun goes down for 45 minutes and return in the dark. A whole new perspective of the town.

River Cruise – Sail through the swing bridge, under the High Level Bridge and the beautiful Larpool viaduct to Ruswarp. This trip on the stunningly beautiful Esk is relaxing and quiet. Lots of opportunities to see wildlife ranging from seals and otters to heron and stunning birdlife. A photographer’s dream!
