 Lynmouth Boat Trips

Exmoor National Park Boat Trips
Exmoor National Park host two boat trips per month from Lynmouth Harbour starting mid-April. This is a unique experience where an Exmoor National Park Ranger takes you along the steep cliffs, tiny inlets and rocky shoreline of the North Devon coast all the while providing you with enough information and history that one might consider you an expert! Plus you have the added extra of spotting a swooping razorbill or a seal basking in the sunshine.
Booking is essential as these trips sell out fast. 
All boat trips are listed on our What's On page or alternatively, please call them direct on 01598 752509.
