The Bempton Cliffs is a spectacular cruise with things to see from start to end.
Taking the Belle across Bridlington Bay (known in previous centuries as The Bay of Safety or Bay of Refuge the skipper will point out sites of interest, Trinity Church, Trinity Cut, Expanse Hotel, Sewerby Cliffs with its magnificent house Sewerby House (once the home of the Lloyd Graeme family) with its Amy Johnson Collection, marking the start of the spectacular Flamborough Heritage Coast.
From Sewerby you will sail past Danes Dyke (much earlier than the Danes) South Landing of Flamborough until reaching the tip of Flamborough Head with its magnificent lighthouse. Once turning northwards the true spectacle of the white chalk cliffs of Flamborough and Bempton are seen. The caves and stacks of Flamborough, with North Landing, Breil Newk and Thornwick Bays. You will then sail slowly along the cliffs until reaching Bempton Cliffs to see the stature and majesty of the tallest sheer 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 Belle reaches Staple Newk, you will be treated to a view of the geological fault known as Scale Nab.
The Belle will make a leisurely trip back to Bridlington Harbour - always on the lookout for further sightings of birds or mammals such as seals and Harbour Porpoise.
