Blue Thunder Rib Rides - Sea Safari





This is our best seller and offers the best of both worlds. Our Sea Safaris are a mixture of picturesque views, high speed manoeuvers and exploration of marine life in and around St Ives coastline.

The first part of the trip takes you 3.5 miles either across the bay over to the iconic GODREVY LIGHTHOUSE or to SEAL ISLAND.

When we arrive at our destination we stop and spend some time exploring around the islands, enjoying the views and the seals grazing on the rocks with the occasional dolphin leaping out of the water.
(There are seal colonies at both destinations)

The last part of this trip is a fun-filled thrilling rib ride back down the coastline turning into all the coves and slicing through the ocean at speed. The destination is determined by the weather on the day.


Adults: £25

Children(3-14): £25




On departure of the harbour we will have a high speed orientation run, then we will head out either east or west, to make the most of the conditions on the day.
