Throughout the season boats leave Alum Bay on a short 20 minute cruise for close up views of the Needles Lighthouse and Rocks.

On leaving the beach the boats pass under the 400 foot cliffs to view the sea-level Victorian Fort.

From there & moving onto the seaward end of the bay you cruise past the remains of the ‘original needles rock’ and then onto the towering Needles Lighthouse.

The return trip takes you further off shore to enable passengers to appreciate the breathtaking views of the cliffs and coloured sands.

With commentary. Subject to weather.
