Details

One of our most popular trips, this is your chance to explore the marine wildlife and magnificent coastline around the village of Mousehole onboard the Cormorant.

Skipper Neil Brockman is a WiSe Accredited Wildlife Safe Operator which ensures Cormorant Cruising operates in a responsible manner to avoid the disturbance of animals and protects their wild nature. 

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. 

Depending on conditions, trips will either go north passing the old Penlee lifeboat station on the way up to Newlyn, and round to Penzance with views of St Michael’s Mount across the bay, or if we turn south you will cruise down to the beautiful Lamorna Cove with distant views of the majestic Tater-du Lighthouse.

*Please note that all passengers need to have a reasonable level of fitness with the ability to climb up and down granite steps in order to board the Cormorant. The precise trip itinerary/route is entirely at the discretion of the skipper and for your safety & comfort may vary from our listing due to tides, sea state and weather conditions. If it looks like the conditions are unsuitable your trip may be cancelled – if so you will receive notification via email and a full refund given. 

If the specific date and / or time of trip you are wanting is not available please drop us an enquiry at Info@cormorantcruising.co.uk as we may still be able to arrange a trip for you.

Why not make your trip extra special with a Luxury Hamper or Cornish Cream Tea?
Working with our partner Four Teas Cafe Mousehole, a variety of food and drink hampers can be arranged for you to enjoy onboard. For more information click here.

There were so many Oooo, Ahhhh moments on this wonderful trip out of Mousehole Harbour, Captained by Skipper Neil who happens to be both ex RNLI and Mousehole born and bred, so you are in very safe and knowledgeable hands.

Neil kept us entertained with his local knowledge both fact and fantasy, ( Ask about the animal in the cave! ) There was lots to hear and lots to see. We spotted a couple of Harbour seals and a pod of inquisitive Dolphins came to inspect both us and the boat, diving and jumping alongside us, they were so fast and so playful, that was a truly amazing and joyful experience.

The weather was beautiful, a perfect blue sky day in an Indian Summer on the Cornish Riviera. We had such a wonderful time.

Thank you Neil x

My wife and I took a private boat tour with Neil for out honeymoon trip to Mousehole.And we had the most magical time! No promises were made but we saw dolphins, seals and learnt so much about Mousehole and the surrounding coast! My wife has bad sea legs and Neil did a great job of making us feel safe and calm. Would 100% recommend this as we had the best time! Hopefully see you again soon!

We had a wonderful time with Neil today. The dolphins were following the boat and were amazing to see. He also made time for us to fish for our dinner which is being barbecued as I write this review. Absolutely fabulous time. Don’t hesitate to book.

Fantastic boat trip. The skipper was knowledgeable, friendly and gave us a truly unforgettable experience. Seeing the wildlife is obviously not guaranteed but on this occasion we got lucky and saw dolphins and seals in the most beautiful of surroundings. I can’t recommend this trip highly enough. It was the highlight of an amazing trip to Cornwall.
