Ilfracombe’s harbour may look picturesque but once you’re out on its waters you’re likely to spot all kinds of action. From friendly seals to porpoises and even dolphins, a coastal cruise aboard the Ilfracombe Princess is one of the most exciting family attractions in Ilfracombe. The cruises leave from Ilfracombe harbour regularly from Easter to October, and the choices include a special seals cruise – now who can say no to that?!
The coastal landscape that surrounds Ilfracombe is one of the UK’s most dramatic, and a cruise means you can sit back and enjoy the views to make sure you don’t miss a thing. Cruises from Ilfracombe also pass the majestic Lundy Island, one of North Devon’s most famous landmarks. Alternatively, there's an Exmoor bird cruise that's ever popular with wildlife fans. Dogs are welcome aboard all cruises, so those on dog-friendly holidays can plan a trip too.
