Half hour coastal trips leave the harbour every few minutes. Waiting time, even during the summer months, is usually no more than 15 minutes. Parties can phone to pre-book a boat which will be ready and waiting at the time you require.

The trips take in the beauty of the Cornish coastline, seeing birds and wildlife in their natural habitat, and although not guaranteed there is the occasional sighting of dolphins, sunfish and basking sharks and other types of sea life. You can't help but be impressed with what is God's glorious creation of the coastline and the caves. The cost for this boat trip is still only £6.00 adults £4.00 children (under 12). Nice dogs and happy babies (under 2) go for free.

Trips to Looe, Polruan & Fowey

We also offer trips to neighbouring Looe. This trip does depend on tides. So times vary each day. For a slightly longer trip we can take you to the picturesque Fowey estuary stopping at Pulruan and Fowey.

For those that have walked the coastal path from Looe we offer a one way service for £9.00 adults and £5.00 children (under 12). Or for those who want to spend a couple of hours ashore in Looe and then return to Polperro the cost would be £15.00 adults and £7.00 children (under 12). A great way to visit our neighbouring village without the hassle of trying to park.

For a slightly longer trip we take you into Fowey where you can enjoy a very relaxing hour long trip by boat along the coastline and then around the spectacular Fowey estuary. We land you at the town quay where you now have time to explore the narrow winding little streets or have lunch in one of the many restaurants and bars. You will then embark again at town quay 2 hours later to be returned home to Polperro. For the more energetic we can offer one way trips to Fowey or Polruan where you can then walk the coastal path. The cost for this half day trip is £25.00 adults and £15.00 children (under 12). The one way price is £15.00 adults and £7.00 children (under 12). The boats depart Polperro daily at 12:30, arriving back at Polperro at 16:30. For groups we can operate at different times to suit.

Polperro Fishing Trips

For those who would like to do a spot of fishing we have two hour mackerel trips POA with Skipper Oliver Puckey, all fishing gear provided, where we take you to the wrecks and reefs just off the coast. With the experienced skipper Ollie you will spend a very enjoyable couple of hours and hopefully bring back a few fish for dinner.

Don't miss your chance to spend some quality time at sea while you are enjoying your holiday in Polperro and South East Cornwall.

All of our boatmen are licensed and trained to the highest standard for your safety and comfort. Just come along to the harbour near the beach where you will be directed aboard by our boat agent person on shore and don't forget we operate every day even when the tide is out subject weather.
