Perfect trip for a family with little ones, the people who run the tour are really friendly. The trip lasts 25 minutes-ish, so is just the right length for the short attention span of a toddler. Seeing Whitby by sea is a must as well.

Return trip to Whitby and on the lifeboat. Boat trip was excellent with stunning views of the Abbey and town.

Enjoyed the trip on this retired lifeboat even though the sea was a little rough. Was disappointed by the lack of commentary. Had expected more from previous reviews. Was the first trip of the day. Maybe it's more engaging as the day goes on.

You could take your luggage if not too big. The company i'm sure would look after it while you do the trip.
