The Needles by Boat

From Easter through to October, boats leave Alum Bay beach for cruises to the Needles Lighthouse and rocks, motoring under 400 foot high cliffs to view the sea-level Victorian fort and nesting cormorant colonies. At the end of the bay, the boat passes the remains of the original Needles rock and sails close past the 100 foot tall Needles Lighthouse.

On the return trip, the boat travels further off-shore to enable passengers to appreciate the breathtaking views of the cliffs and sands and to catch sight of the Needles Coastguard look-out. Commentary is provided during the trip.

All trips are subject to the weather being good enough for a totally safe passage.
