Please note: We do not offer a commentary or talk during our harbour trips. Instead, you are invited to ask our knowledgeable and friendly volunteer crew questions and they'll be very happy to answer as best they can. There are also information sheets that you can look at while on board.

Do I need to buy a ticket for my baby? If you are able to carry your baby, they would qualify as 'babe in arms' ( (i.e. a very young child or a baby who is not yet able to walk or crawl, and so must be carried in someone’s arms) and you don't need to buy a ticket for them.

Check out our FAQ page for more information on what to expect.
