What is a skippered boat hire?

Unlike our safari tours, a boat trip via skippered charter means you don’t have to stick to our typical routes or agendas. Your boat will be exclusively yours to enjoy with your family, friends or business colleagues. And because it’s your private charter, then you choose where to go.
We can help you to decide how to plan your route depending on whether your priority is searching for wildlife, seeing parts of the coastline such as Trevose Head, Port Isaac or Tintagel, or just getting some exhilaration on the open water. With this boat trip, you hire the boat and we will take you anywhere you would like to go.
Our experienced skippers are sailors who are very familiar with the local area. Take advantage of their extensive maritime, historical, or geographical knowledge and you will get the most out of your boat trip.
All our skippers are local seamen with years of experience on the water, having spent the majority of their lives on the sea, some of which volunteer on the Padstow lifeboat crew.

Where do we go?

Up to Boscastle for an ice cream, Newquay for lunch or maybe bring a picnic to enjoy in a sheltered cove. Be sure that wherever you decide to go, our skipper will ensure that your experience is the best, and safest it can possibly be. With decades of experience on the water, our skippers know their stuff.

What’s the limit?

There will be limits to where we can go, depending on the timescale and your budget. We will also have restrictions of where we can access with the boat. That being said, if you do have any special requests we would be happy to discuss the options.

Added Extras

We know that everyone wants their experience to be a little different and that’s why we aspire to create the best boat hire Cornwall has to offer. Want a bottle of bubbly while you enjoy the view, bring one on! All glass bottles are permitted all we request is that the glasses you’re drinking from are plastic as they’re considerably more fragile. You can even bring on your own picnic if you fancy it.

The North Cornish coast is your playground – so what are you waiting for? Call us today before we’re booked up.
