Yorkshire Belle cruises are dependent on weather and tides, so please always check for confirmation of sailing by calling us, especially before setting off on a long journey as we’d hate for you to be disappointed.
30 Minute Seaside Special
Take in the sights as we sail along the length of Bridlington’s seafronts. Perfect for a bit of sightseeing.
1 Hour Lighthouse Cruise
Our traditional cruise to see the Lighthouse at Flamborough Head has been the mainstay of the Boat’s cruises for all of its 72 years.
On this trip we sail from Bridlington Harbour in a North Easterly direction across Bridlington Bay, famous for its sheltered seas.
As we reach the tip of Flamborough Head you will see both of the Lighthouses (the old and the “new”) and of course being at sea you will gain a perspective of the cliffs and these features, that cannot be seen from Bridlington.
1.5 Hour Breil Newk Cruise
This slightly longer cruise takes the same course as the Lighthouse cruise however, instead of turning around at Flamborough Head, we will continue around the head and on to the spectacle that is Breil Newk. As we approach, the noises from the thousands of seabirds nesting on the cliffs will take your breath away.
1.5 Hours Silex Bay Cruse
Towards the end of the season, as the birds have left the cliffs, we replace the Breil Newk Cruise with our Silex Bay Cruise. We take the same course as the Breil Newk cruise but turn around at Silex Bay where you will get great views of the lighthouses and may see seals in the water or on the rocks catching some sunshine!
2.5 Hours Bempton cliffs Cruise
After following the coast out to and around Flamborough Head, we will then sail slowly along until reaching Bempton Cliffs to see the stature and majesty of over 400 foot high, chalk cliffs.
Seabirds will be all around the boat (May - July) with Puffins, Guillemots, Razorbills, Shags, Fulmar, Kittiwake, Herring Gulls and the glorious Gannets.
A trip to record with your camera and once the boat reaches Staple Newk, you will be treated to a view of the rare geological fault known as Scale Nab.
3 Hours (or longer) Bempton Cliffs and on towards Filey Bay
This fabulous trip will take you North from Bridlington Harbour across Bridlington Bay, taking in the sights from our other cruises. But instead of turning around at Bempton Cliffs, we sail on past Speeton, Reighton and Hunmanby Gap, into the magnificent Filey Bay
Ardent fans of the Yorkshire Belle love this much longer trip into Filey Bay. You can really appreciate the majesty of both the fabulous East and North Yorkshire coastline together with the charm of the Yorkshire Belle itself.
In recent years we have noticed that photographers appreciate this trip as it gives a chance to see the Heritage Coast in its entirety from Sewerby Steps to Speeton.
