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 south approx 6 miles towards Sovereign light tower “approx 15 minutes”, once there the Kraken will circle the tower a few times allowing you to get some photos while you listen to some fun facts regarding the tower.
You will then head west for roughly 30 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. Stopping at various points along the way you will then head east following the sisters to Beachy Head.
Keep a good lookout for local wildlife including Dolphins and Seals as they often like to play with the Kraken.
After listening to some fun facts of the area you will then arrive at Beachy Head Lighthouse. lots of photo opertunites to be had.
As you start to make your way along Eastbourne seafront you will pass Eastbourne’s very own big wheel, lifeboat museum and its famous bandstand. Passing the pier we head back to Sovereign Harbour where you arrive safely back at 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 the Sovereign Harbour’s many restaurants and sit back and relax at this 5-star harbour.
(Please note that depending on the weather and sea state the Skipper may do the route in reverse for your comfort and safety)
