St Ives offers a number of boat trips from around the harbour front and Wharf Road. They include trips across St Ives Bay towards Gwithian and Hell’s Mouth, down to Seal Island, a group of rocks 3.5 miles from St Ives where grey Atlantic seals live in their natural habitat, or further west along the coast to fish, look for basking sharks and dolphins, or just enjoy the spectacular coastal scenery.
