Seal Island/Godrevy Lighthouse
At times, usually when we have recently had rough seas, the water can be very murky and we are sadly unable to see very much through the glass bottom; at these times we offer a basic seal watching trip. This will take you approximately 3.5 miles either westward to Seal Island, or across the bay to Godrevy Lighthouse (depending on conditions), where you'll spend some time watching the local seal colony from the boat.
Please note, this is only available when we are unable to offer our Underwater Sea Safari

A small rocky island just off the coast, the Western Carracks are known locally as 'Seal Island' due to the colony of Atlantic Grey Seals that are there year-round. People have been taking passengers on boat trips to Seal Island for over 70 years.
Standing proudly across St Ives Bay is Godrevy Lighthouse. It was built in 1859 to protect passing boats from the treacherous 'Stones Reef', the light within the tower has not been in use since 2012 and was replaced by an LED light mounted nearby on the island.
