Cornish Summer Party: Snorkeling with Seals 23 - 26 June

This weekend is now sold out.  If you would like to be added to the waiting list enter your email below and we will alert you if there are any cancellations

Spend a long weekend staying in luxury accommodation in the coastal village of Sennen in Cornwall.  Take a rib journey (Rigid-hull Inflatable Boat) and experience swimming with seals in their natural environment.  This is a unique mini-break to cornwall -  a very special experience swimming with seals with an expert local guide, staying in luxury accommodation with lots of additional activities to make this 3 night 4 day break one of our highlights of the year.  

On Saturday we’ll head out in a rib in small groups to snorkel with seals.  Our guide for this unique trip will be a leading wildlife expert and photographer and we’ll have a network of fishermen and coastguard look-outs to help us locate wildlife in the area.  Seals are graceful, inquisitive and playful animals and swimming with them is a very special experience.  There is also a chance of seeing common and bottlenose dolphin, sunfish (Mola mola), whale, porpoise and many species of seabirds.  If we are lucky we could even see or swim with basking sharks as they migrate through the area at this time of year. 

Having our own rib allows us to visit remote coves with no other visitors.  Only seven swimmers are allowed on the boat or in the water at any time to maximise the experience for each participant.  

The area around Sennen Cove is beautiful, with clear waters and a rugged coastline interspersed with sandy coves.  When we’re not swimming the views from the boat are great and the rib ride is an exhilarating experience in itself.  For the rest of the weekend there’s lots to do - there’s is great surfing in Sennen Cove and an excellent surf school.  There is also spectacular hiking right from our door on the South West Coast Path, or you could spend some time simply relaxing and explore the shops and galleries in the village.

In the evenings we’ll head back to our luxury accommodation, a spacious and comfortable holiday home.  It’s just a short walk through the dunes to the beach and has beautiful views down to the cove and the sea from its large garden and terrace.  If the weather’s good we can have BBQs in the garden as the sun sets.  Rooms are arranged in doubles, twins and one triple.

If you've never come on an EC Adventure before, they're informal, friendly and great fun. We generally have singles, couples and small sets of friends coming along, from complete beginners to adventure professionals - what we all share is a love for adventure. Ages tend to range between mid 20s and mid 40s but anyone over 18 years old and young at heart is welcome.
