These beautifully restored and maintained speedboats are a fantastic way to see the estuary. The look and sound fantastic and the ride us exciting and exhilarating. It's definitely the best boat trip I have ever had at any seaside resort and also really good value for money and you see miles of coastline in a short space of time.

Enjoyed a exhilarating speed boat trip, a natural high that certainly put a smile on my families faces. Whilst short (approx 15 mins) it was well worth the price... Fab!!!

As a visitor to Padstow several times a year, I know the day would not be complete without a ride on one of these boats. It doesn't matter which boat you choose, you're guaranteed a lot of fun, but we usually wait for Dave on Sea Fury as we always have the best time with him. Our trip yesterday (24/10/16)... More

The trip then takes you passed Pentire... More

Went on this trip on a beautiful September day. Captain was great and knowledgeable about the coast as he is local and been around sea and Padstow for life. I'm disabled and he and his crew were amazing so very grateful. Saw seals as a perfect end to the trip. Top trip. Recommended highly. We will go back next year..
