Sailing & Sea Fishing Trips from Minehead Harbour
If you want to find your sea legs while you stay with us, then we recommend one of the sailing or sea fishing trips offered by Teddie Boy Charters. All these excursions start from Minehead Harbour, just a short walk from our Vicarage Road cottages, or a short drive from The Oval cottage in Dunster.
Cruise the coastline and enjoy spotting the wildlife
If you love wildlife and birdwatching, you’re in for a treat! The Somerset and North Devon coastline is not only dramatic, it is home to some of the highest sea cliffs in the UK. That makes them the perfect home for a wide range of seabirds like gannets, storm petrels and gulls – as well as nesting peregrine falcons and other birds of prey. Don’t forget the sea life! On these trips, you might see porpoises, and seals too. Pack your binoculars and get ready for some serious spotting!
Sailing tour prices
Fully licensed and insured for up to 12 people, tours are priced per person and include:
- A 30-minute short trip around Minehead Bay – £9
- A one-hour cruise to Selworthy – £15
- A two-hour cruise to Porlock Weir – £25
- A four-hour lighthouse trip towards Lynmouth and Lynton – £45
Please say you are staying at one of Lucy’s cottages for the best rates.
Coastal tours are usually taken during the daylight hours, but in the Summer Mike offers occasional sunset cruises, too.
Sea fishing trip prices
Skipper Mike also offers fishing trips. Prices are per person with all equipment and bait supplied. You can bring your own equipment if you prefer.
- A two-hour trip from £25
- A four-hour trip from £45
- An eight-hour trip from £80
Again, however, for best prices don’t forget to mention that you are a guest at one of Lucy’s cottages. Please contact Skipper Mike on 07894 536672 or firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange your dates and discuss prices.
There are discounts for families/children. We recommend you book in advance, although Mike can often squeeze you in even if you contact him once you’ve arrived at your Exmoor Character Cottage. Your contract and payment are direct with Teddie Boy Charters.
Prices are correct as of March 2021. COVID restrictions and rules apply. Mike will explain these to you when you book.
