Padstow Sealife Safaris offer passengers the chance to experience the high speed thrill in search of the rich and diverse marine wildlife that the North Cornish Coast has to offer, yet in a safe and responsible manner. Our ethos is for sensitive wild life observation without disturbing their nature habitat. Your safety and comfort are paramount to us. All passengers are fitted with life jackets and a safety briefing given before departure of every trip. Waterproofs are available on request. We understand that some people may have a disability or are just concerned about the boat, just tell us and we will do our utmost to help. The vessel is fully licensed and carries Third Party Insurance (excluding personal effects).
