Join us on one of our boat trips to explore the UK’s first National Marine Park.

The Ocean Conservation Trust is exploring the UK’s first National Marine Park, setting sail on selecting dates throughout the year. Our Ocean Discovery Rangers will help you discover our British wildlife, from big to small, as well as the history of Plymouth’s stunning natural harbour. These Plymouth boat trips are open to everyone to explore more about the Ocean with our onboard Marine Biologists.

Meet our Ocean Discovery Rangers outside the Aquarium at 10am, then head over to the Silver Crest, where our crew will take us for an hour’s adventure on the waves. We have a capacity of 35 on our Boat Trips!
