We begin by exploring the pretty fishing port of Brixham, the breakwater, Berry Head and Lighthouse, Cod Rock and the rugged South Devon coastline. Flanking Dartmouth, we head into Tor Bay to see what’s on the water – might be fishing, potting or sailing boats or heritage trawlers.

Whatever the weather, you’re warm and dry – your camera wrapped if needs be in a rain cape we provide. And aboard 'Silver Sea' or 'Kellys Hero' you’re in safe hands. Our skipper’s day job (his name is Mark) is RNLI Lifeboat Coxswain. With over 30 years’ seagoing experience, he positions the boat perfectly.
