  • Information

    Seal Island is the largest island in The Carracks, a group of small rocky inshore islands 200m offshore and around 6km from St Ives.

    The island gets its name as it’s the home to a colony of Grey Atlantic seals.

    You have two options to see the seals; (1) is by a Seal Island boat trip from St Ives harbour or (2) with a set of binoculars from the coast path.

      A great family boat trip and you get up close to the grey seals. The trip was about 1 hour 15 minutes and we seemed to get to the island very fast, overtaking a couple of other boats and we had around 15 minutes of watching time.
      Just one warning that we did get a little damp from the spray of the boat, but on a hot day that didn’t matter.
      Highly recommend this as an outing.
