“A boat trip with Spongebob”

Whitby Old Lifeboat
Ranked #1 of 17 Tours in Whitby
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 May 2013

This was a smashing trip, great value at £3.00 each. The man selling tickets by the harbour was very chatty. The crewman was great, making everyone welcome, and gave a good commentary, lighthearted but with interesting information as well. He was ready to answer any questions. The trip was short, about half an hour, but long enough to get great views. In the cabin was a Spongebob toy as 'mate'. At that price we might make another trip next time. There is a flight of steps down to the boat, so not suitable for people who might have problems on stairs.

Many exhibits and displays charting the heroic exploits of RNLI crews past and present. Nothing to dislike.

the old whitby lifeboat,"Mary Ann Hepworth" is a great seagoing vessel that takes you out to sea for 30 minutes unlike other trips that turn back and are home after 20 minutes.
Barry on the helm is a laugh a minute with his old seafaring tales and yarns of life in Whitby.
the boat is a great example of its class and just shows you how brave those who took her out to sea in troubled times to rescue others.
we have been on her for the last 3 years and enjoy meeting up with Barry and his crew. Barry has great forecasting skills as he predicted that my expectant wife was having a girl and he was right.
see you next year Barry.

Thoroughly recommended - kids, dogs - everyone welcome. Crew knowledgable and friendly. Great views out of harbour entrance and up to the abbey.
