Great 20 mins trip round the Needles, which are disappointly small close up. They look enormous from a distance ! Great value cruise, worth the price of the chairlift down

Whilst visiting The Needles Attraction, we went down to Allum Bay beach by chairlift. At the bottom we saw two boats sitting on a jetty. A rib and a pleasure boat. We chose the pleasure boat to go out to see The Needle​s Lighthouse. This...More

Took the grand kids on the tour, which they thoroughly enjoyed. We were lucky as the sea was smooth. Good fun

Nice cruise to see the lighthouse and cliffs. They run frequently and last around 20 minutes. Staff point out a few sights during the trip and explain about the cliffs etc. Only downside is I think at £6 for 20 mins it's a little pricey...More

I'd really recommend this boat trip. The commentary was informative and the trip itself was very enjoyable and we got to see The Needles quite closely! The beach the cruises run from is a lovely spot for a picnic.

A very nice trip out to the needles with time to take loads of photos. Staff very helpful and friendly with lots of knowledge about the area. A really lovely way to spend 20 - 25 minutes. Boat was very clean with lots of seating.

The boats are clean and the staff friendly and helpful, good value and the trip at around 20-25 minutes is just right.

Went on a sunny quiet day with 11 year old. Views are great. RIB not as exhilarating as expected - probably because of calm waters. Disappointed that captain didn't stop for a photo as expected - he only slowed the boat down slightly. Slowboat might...More

How much does the boat trip cost?

Response from Kate M | Reviewed this property |
It was £5.50 for adults and £3.50 for children. Not sure if there are seasonal price changes but that's what we paid. That is for the leisurely trip.

The boats run from the beach at Alum Bay adjacent to the Needles Park Chair Lift. There are also stairs to the beach that run down from the same area. Car parking is available within the Needles Park.
