Explore the magnificent coastline

and breathtaking scenery that surrounds Mousehole
This is your chance to explore the breathtaking scenery and magnificent coastline which surrounds the Cornish village of Mousehole onboard the Cormorant. With Newlyn, Penzance and St Michael’s Mount to the east, or Lamorna, Porthcurno and The Minack Theatre to the west, it’s a great way to see the beautiful Cornish coast from the sea.
 
The small fishing port village of Mousehole has an abundance of charm and character. It’s the perfect destination for a visit during your holiday, with a host of good restaurants, shops and galleries surrounding its picturesque harbour. The very best way to appreciate the beautiful views of this part of the Cornish coast is to join us for a boat trip.
  
Cormorant Cruising is now in the capable hands of local skipper Neil Brockman, building on a business created by Mike & Maxine Collier in 2013. Neil is a Mousehole boy born and bred with a lifetime of maritime experience. He was the coxswain of the Penlee Lifeboat from 1993 until 2008 serving a total of 30 years with the RNLI. He continued his maritime career working as a master all over the world in the offshore renewable energy industry.
Neil has an extensive knowledge of Mount’s Bay, its rugged coastline, caves, rocks, wrecks and maritime history. He will share his first hand experience of daring rescues, lifesaving and fishing in Mount’s Bay, show some amazing photos, telling tales of smugglers and Spanish galleons, and highlight various points of interest as you steam gently up and down the coast – you definitely won’t be disappointed!
 
Trips could encounter basking sharks, dolphins, grey seals, and seabirds in the rich and diverse waters that surround Mousehole. It’s especially exciting for our younger passengers to get a close up view of St Clement’s Island – a rocky outcrop which lays just off Mousehole where grey seals can often be seen basking in the sunshine. 
 
Cormorant carries a maximum of 12 passengers so you have plenty of space, comfort and freedom to move around the boat with 360 degree views for every passenger.

Covid Update

We are open for business but currently operating under the same conditions as last summer – that is a maximum of 6 passengers from different households with safe distancing onboard, or two households/one social bubble of 12 passengers. 

The wearing of masks is optional – outdoor transmission of covid has the smallest of risks, and even less so when you are on a boat in the fresh sea air. Cormorant will be cleaned between trips and hand sanitiser will be available for all passengers.

From Monday 17th May, groups of 30 are allowed outside therefore we will be back to a full complement of 12 passengers.

From Monday 21st June, the government hopes to be in a position to remove all legal limits on social contact so we should be back to normal!
