Enjoyed a pleasant trip on the princess. It's a great way to relax and take in the coast. Commentary throughout keeps you well informed.
Their pricing is not correct however, they claim the leaflet is out of date, even though they still hand them out.
An hour trip is charged at £14, not the £12 advertised.
I would not mind paying if correctly advertised, it is worth it.

Had the smugglers cave 1hr trip - captain was informative, sailed out close to the inland on the way out and on the way back we were at sea more.

Worth the money for the trip. Would do this again

We enjoyed the boat trip, which went out to sea and turned and on the return leg sailed closer to the coast. Commentary throughout to explain where we were. Great to see this part of Devon coast from a different viewpoint, ( from the sea). We did see seals. Wished we had brought better cameras with us.

Took the trip to see the seals to west of Ilfracombe. The captain proved to be a wealth of knowledge of the area, and made the trip totaly enjoyable. the view from the boat of the coast line is quite superb, and if like my wife walking along the cliffs is not an option then this is a great way to view the coast with a view of the seals an added bonus.
