Optional excursions

This afternoon watch the cresting waves for signs of whales, dolphins, porpoises and seals, as you head out of Plymouth Harbour on this exciting cruise. Your onboard naturalist will be there to guide you and if you are fortunate, you may see the large fin whale, the rare humpback or the smaller minke whale. 

Please note the sea conditions can be rough and sightings of whales cannot, of course, be guaranteed. Also, this excursion is not available between November and April.
