Boat Trips & Fishing

Ilfracombe is a working harbour with a long nautical heritage and as you’d expect there are a wide range of boating excursions on offer, from exhilarating power boat rides to further afield trips such as Lundy Island all within a few minutes’ walk from Ocean Backpackers. Whichever you chose you will likely see some spectacular wildlife and amazing views.


There is great sea fishing to be had just walking distance from the backpackers in the picturesque harbour area. 


Fishing charter boats can be hired from Ilfracombe Harbour, and you can go as a group or join a group for a half day/ full days fishing. All vessels are strictly licensed and are fully insured for passenger carrying. All skippers have full maritime qualifications and a wealth of experience for fishing the Bristol Channel.
