On Sunday, June 7 the National Trust is hosting its annual coastal boat trip on the well know Lundy ship MS Oldenburg. Departing from Ilfracombe Harbour, the trip takes in the stunning scenery of the North Devon coastline including Morte Point, Hangman Hills, and Woody Bay. Not only do visitors get to enjoy the drama of the sea cliffs, but it is a great opportunity to enjoy the local wildlife in its natural habitat, particularly sea birds such as Guillemots and Razorbills, nesting at this time of year. The commentary on the trip is provided by National Trust staff and gives insights not only into the wildlife and scenery but also into how the Trust staff and volunteers are working to protect this special coastline for future generations."The trip on the Oldenburg is a fantastic way for people to see North Devon from a different perspective," said North Devon property manager, Steve Mulberry."By boat is definitely the best way to appreciate the coastline of North Devon as you really get a chance to enjoy the grandeur and drama of the cliffs and cleaves, which are teeming with wildlife. "One memorable year a bottlenose dolphin joined us for the trip, giving a once-in-a-life-time chance for many to see this fantastic creature. We can't always guarantee we will see one, which is a great shame, but the scenery and other wildlife always make this a highlight of our events programme."The trip boards at Ilfracombe Harbour at 11am, returning at 2.30pm. Refreshments are available or bring a picnic. Tickets are £15 for adults, £10 for children. Booking is essential via the Lundy Company Booking Office on (01271) 863636.
