This full day geology field trip is one of exploration and learning along some of the most beautiful stretches of the British coastline. On board, is expert geologist Chris Woodward (Jurassic Coast Trust WHS Ambassador), leading us on a live commentary dedicated to understanding the complex and unique geological themes of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site.

Chris Woodward became an ambassador for the Jurassic Coast Trust back in 2015 and focussed not only on links with formal education but also those with specialist interest groups and museums. Chris Participates in geology events such as the Lyme Regis Fossil Festival, Sidmouth Science Week, the Jurassic Coastal Trust’s Evening Cruises, the Exmouth Festival, as well as working with Exmouth’s Town Team on their Dinosaur Trail and Tourist Information staff’s CPD.

Leaving civilization behind and travelling through time over millions of years, this is a unique voyage where tides and weather will determine the specific route of this cruise. Either direction will always incorporate sailing exceptionally close to the coastline for an intimate and detailed look at the scenery. We will also sail further out to give a panoramic perspective that really demonstrates the beauty of our surroundings – simply not viewable any other way.

The South Devon coastline is extremely popular as there is such a variety of rock types and ages clearly exposed in a relatively condensed area. The start of the Jurassic Coast on the other side of the Exe estuary extends 95 miles along to Swanage, the geological history shows over 185 million years of conditions marked by a ‘Great Unconformity’ or time gap distinguishing the rocks of different ages

Sailing on our Pride of Exmouth, there is a fully licenced bar on board serving a range of hot and cold refreshments and snacks. The open top deck is perfect for plenty of fresh aired viewing and the enclosed lower deck is heated with large panoramic windows. Maintaining its traditional features, this boat is also modern, exceptionally clean and well maintained and there are toilets on board. Our efficient and friendly Crew are also on hand throughout the day to help make this extraordinary day trip even more memorable.

Locally sourced seasonal treats are available on this trip when you pre-order, why not try one of our multi award-winning Chunk of Devon pasties? These pasties are so good they were even awarded the title of Cornish Pasty of the Year and have won a Great Taste award for 8 consecutive years. These are only available to pre-order when you make your booking, so make sure you don’t miss out!
