Speedboat and Seal Watching Trips

Coastal Voyager Cruises
Take a seal watching boat trip from Southwold with Coastal Voyager - an open top speedboat RHIB, Rigid Hulled Inflatable Boat. A variety of trips and cruises are available, from seal watching at Scroby Sands, to a high speed boat trip straight out to sea.
Have a go behind the wheel yourself under the instruction of the skipper, or enjoy a more tranquil experience on the River Blythe cruise. Combine a walk with a sea voyage with the Walker One Way at Sea package.
Coastal Voyager Cruise Types

River Blyth Cruise
The peace and tranquillity on the river Blyth is a complete contrast to the hustle and bustle of every day life. You could quite literally be going back in time when you venture up the Blyth Estuary which is steeped in history. This area is protected by English Nature and has many important birds and insects.

Sea Blast
Undoubtedly the most popular trip by far is the high speed trip out to sea off Southwold. The 400hp boat is put through its formidable paces in a 30 min tour of Sole Bay. You can either come as an individual on one of the scheduled trips or charter the whole boat for your own party.
The Drive of Your Life
This is the private hire of Coastal Voyager. You will experience first hand what being behind the wheel of a 9 metre 400hp RIB is really like. Under the instruction of the skipper you will put Coastal Voyager through her paces.

Seal and Wind farm Trip
This is a three hour, thirty five nautical mile round trip to Scroby Sands to see the seal colony and then the wind farm, stopping at the Royal Norfolk and Suffolk Yacht Club on the return journey for a hot chocolate.

Wetter the Better!
Take the wetter the better challenge! An involving day where you get wet. Have a challenging dip in the "Triton" where you get the stormy treatment, wind, waves and a life raft! Don't panic, its all under control in an indoor purpose built facility. Then get to sea for the blast or more, as this trip can be tailored to your needs. Call to build your ideal day.

Walker One-Way
Walk the banks of the Blyth and the route of the old railway line and have a trip in the Coastal Voyager. You'll be picked up or dropped off at Blythburgh from base at Southwold Harbour.

Walker One-Way at Sea
Step off at Dunwich beach. 
Tailor Made Trips
If you would like to suggest a trip, Coastal Voyager may be able to make modifications to suit your needs - just give them a call.
