Nice little 30 mins jaunt out to sea, it was nice to see Whitby from a different point of view. Informative about the history of The Endeavour and Captain Cook.

A trip out to sea on this boat is a must when visiting Whitby. Informative, fun and very friendly and helpful staff . The man selling tickets was brilliant and funny . It’s the best £3.50 you’ll spend when visiting !

This is not a long trip but it is value for money. We were there this time on a really sunny day and there were queues of people waiting to buy tickets. We bought tickets sufficiently in advance of the sailing time to be able...More

Cut above the rest, really gives you a sea adventure. It was a bit choppy but it adds to it. Its about the same amount as the rest but well worth it
