Raptor Boating provides wildlife & scenic tours, water taxi and private charters services around the Isles of Scilly.

Raptor is an 11 metre Redbay cabin RIB powered by twin 300hp Yamaha outboards. It is licensed for 12 passengers, all 12 can be seated comfortably in the outside seating area. Should you choose there is additional seating in the cabin.

Raptor has an outside steering position which we use when in close proximity to wildlife giving you an opportunity to ask any questions direct to the skipper.

Wildlife & Scenic Tours

Our 90 minute wildlife and scenic tour will take you to one of the seal colonies to give you close up views of our resident Atlantic Grey seals.

You will get to see a variety of birdlife including Gannets, Guillemots, Fulmars, Cormorants, Razorbills and more, Puffins are seen for 4 months - April to end of July. Dolphins and Porpoise are sometimes seen on our trips. 

Your skipper will give you a guided tour of the islands and point out sights of interest on the way. The trips route will vary depending on weather and sea conditions meaning no two trips are ever the same. 

The trip is fast, fun and suitable for all the family, young and old. Our outside seating area offers a fantastic viewing platform for taking in the wildlife, stunning scenery and beauty that the islands have to offer.
