On the Water this September

As the Summer holidays end, locals and holiday makers in the know welcome September in Cornwall, with the crowds from July and August gone, the sea temperature at its warmest and our RNLI still on duty, September is one of the best times of the year to get out on the water.

Here are The Atlantic Hotel’s ideas on how to experience the Cornish coast at its best….

Newquay Sea Safaris run trips throughout the Autumn and Winter and leaves old historical Newquay harbour, down the hill from The Atlantic Hotel, cruising off along the rugged Cornish coastline, stopping to view birds, marine wildlife and crabbing boats whilst learning about Newquay’s Maritime History and the plight of our marine habitat.

At Seal Cove watch the seals in their natural environment before speeding out to deeper ocean for more off shore wildlife encounters to complete your Thrilling Adventure!… Spot for dolphins, Basking sharks, Sunfish, Harbour Porpoise and a huge array of sea birds or watch the Skipper haul his lobster pots. Every day experiences different encounters and sea states so this is a trip that will delight every time.
