On our 2nd. last day of stay in Cornwall, we were chilling on St. Aves Sandy beach and all of sudden our son decided to go on Self Drive Motor Boat Ride. Due to Speed Boat experience we were reluctant but after seeing other families going, we booked for six people (four adults & 2 Child) for 45 minutes. It was really a great experience, controlling boat in Atlantic Ocean. We were given life jackets and properly briefed for safety instructions. Enjoyed 45 minutes, Beautiful views from sea. Sea was not much rough. Good experience.

Booked motorboat hire for 6 people - 2 adults , 2 older teens and 2 young teens . Arrived and discovered that they would only let us on as 5 people . I had to stay behind on the beach . Disappointed . Guy on beach said it would have taken the 6 of us but as the boss said no we had to comply .

Went with 2 young children - 5 and 11. They loved it and just the right speed and time (30mins) for them. Older children might struggle as the boats and area is limited but for young ones well worth doing.

As a local I don’t often do these types of things but decided to give it a go. Was given a full safety briefing, given life jackets and off we went. Enjoyed seeing the views from a different perspective! Cheap in price (£35 for half hour!!) and lovely friendly staff ☺️
