Pentire and The Rumps Tour (Puffin Island)

Puffin Island2
Pentire and The Rumps Tour (Puffin Island)

Heading out from Rock or Padstow the boat crosses Hayle Bay (Polzeath) then around the stunning Pentire Headland. We pass under the looming 300ft laval cliffs of Pentire then head towards the Iron-age hill forts of The Rumps. Hugging the sheltered reefs here we often see seals. In May/June The Mouls Island just off Pentire Head is also host to a colony of Puffins which can be observed in flight, in the water and occasionally feeding their young in their burrows. We may even be lucky enough to see sunfish around this area.

The Rumps Tour costs £40 per adult and £30 per child under 14. The tours run for approximately 2 hours and lifejackets are provided. We do recommend bringing a warm layer, a waterproof jacket and sun cream. In particularly wet weather we can provide full waterproofs.
