When you arrive at our meeting point you will be greeted by your captain and first mate, once your booking has been confirmed we will supply you with a life jacket and show you how to properly wear it.
When everybody is ready you will be given a quick briefing on some of the safety features on board.
Once aboard the Kraken and sitting comfortably you will then depart to one of the 2 large locks at Sovereign Harbour, while you wait for the lock to change you get a glimpse of how things look like for all boats that use them
Once the Kraken has moored up inside the lock there is plenty of opportunities to ask any questions regarding your trip or just chill out with friends and family before starting your journey.
When you leave the lock the Kraken will take you through the outer harbour keeping to the 5 Knot speed limit. Keep an eye out for seals at low tide as they can often be found resting on the banks on either side.
As we leave the protection of the outer harbour wall there might be a few rough waves “weather depending” so hold on tight. Once cleared we will head west for roughly 25 minutes depending on weather conditions passing lots of fishing markers and other vessels until we arrive at the far end of Seven Sisters which is located near Seaford. you will then head east following the sisters to Beachy Head stopping at various points along the way so you can grab some fun pics.
Keep a good lookout for local wildlife including Dolphins and Seals as they often like to play with the Kraken. Listening to some facts on the way as you head towards Beachy Head Lighthouse “yet another photo opportunity”
As you start to make your way along Eastbourne seafront you will pass Eastbourne’s very own big wheel, lifeboat museum and its famous band stand. Passing the pier we head back to Sovereign Harbour where we arrive safely back to the lock.
Once we arrive back in the harbour your skipper will help you off the Kraken where you can enjoy the rest of your day.
Why not treat yourself to one of Sovereign Harbour’s many restaurants or maybe a cheeky cocktail while having your hair cut?
( Please note that depending on the weather and sea state the Skipper may do the route in reverse for your comfort and safety)
