Scenic Harbour Cruise

Cruise with Plymouth Boat Trips and explore the beautiful Devon and Cornish coasts, with live commentary, on board café and licensed bar. Boats depart daily from the Barbican Landing Stage, adjacent to the Mayflower Steps, Plymouth.

Scenic Harbour Cruise Information

Our 1-Hour Scenic Harbour Cruises depart daily from The Barbican Landing Stage, off Mayflower Steps, Plymouth – home of Sir Walter Raleigh & Sir Francis Drake.

An extremely popular, informative and enjoyable way to see the sights. We set sail across the Plymouth Sound flanked by the beautiful Devon and Cornish coasts. Passing Plymouth Hoe, the famous Drakes Island, spectacular views of Mount Edgcumbe, Royal William Yard and heading for the river Tamar, pulling into one of the largest Naval Dockyards in Western Europe – where the mighty warships and nuclear submarines await.

All boats have toilets on board and a licensed bar, where a full range of hot & cold drinks can be purchased, whilst sitting back and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.  A beautiful cruise for all the family to enjoy.

Returning down the beautiful coastline to return 1 hour later back at the Barbican.

PLEASE NOTE: Wheelchair access onto the vessel will depend on the boat being used on the day, please visit our Accessibility Page or call our office for further advise.

 

Dog Friendly – Dogs are allowed on all our Daytime Cruises & Ferries, but must remain on their leads.
