To enjoy Ilfracombe fully, every visitor should take to the water at some stage; there are the trips to Lundy Island, or coastal cruises along the coast including seal and wildlife safari and white water adventure, or charter a boat for sea fishing.
You can charter a boat from Osprey Charters. They say… “Deep sea trips can last anything from 4 to 12 hours, depending on your requirements. We cater for all ages and experiences, both novices and the more experienced angler.”
Also, you could use Bristol Channel Charters. They are based in Ilfracombe. They say they have access to some of the best boat fishing and diving in the South West including Lundy Island and nature reserve.
Their Evolution 38 “Jay Jay” can be booked for diving, angling and Sight-Seeing throughout the year.
There are a number of leaflets available at Lantern House.
