Have you always wanted to swim with seals, meet like-minded ocean-loving females and explore more of the beautiful UK coastline and wildlife? This Lundy island trip is the ultimate ocean girls day out! Girls that Scuba is the world's largest female dive community, we run trips around the world, and love connecting women with each other!

The trip starts and ends at Ilfracombe Harbour (carpark is EX34 9EQ) you will need to arrive at 8:30am on the day of your trip.
Trip duration is usually 8-9 hours depending on tide and weather. Trips are planned around the tides and with this, in mind start, times vary slightly, according to the state of the tide on the day. We leave at 09:00 and aim to arrive back between 6 - 6:30.
If you are not from the local area, it may be nice to stay in Ilfracombe overnight rather than driving back after a long day on the boat - there are usually other Girls that Scuba guests that do this, so you can all have dinner together in Ilfracombe.

Please note these trips are subject to weather. The ocean can be choppy in the Bristol channel and the crossing from Ilfracombe to Lundy can sometimes be a rough ride. The captain will make the final call on any weather issues 48 hours before the trip. We should also get a better forecast 7 days before the trip, so aim to keep you informed of any potential changes in advance. If your trip is cancelled because of bad weather we will re-schedule to another trip or, if that is not possible we will give a full refund. Please keep this in mind if booking accommodation - it is best to book accommodation that doesn't require full upfront payments or allow cancellation.
