During 2013 we have updated “Willow” our faithful previous boat for a larger faster boat for the forthcoming season.

We cater for up to 10 passengers in comfort and provide a skipper and crew. Lundy Castaway cruises at 10 to12 knots and is kept to highest standards of cleanliness safety and comfort and inspected by the MCA. She is fitted with a private toilet and hand basin with hot and cold water. We also have a small galley on board for hot drinks etc. Lundy Castaway is also fitted with a fridge to keep your picnics and drinks cool for your time on board. We even have a warm shower fitted for divers swimmers and snorkellers who want a quick splash down of fresh water after coming out of sea. We are now looking forward to 2015 on the water again with some long sunny days on Lundy Island with Lundy Castaway.
Picture on the Left. Lundys main anchorage on the Easterly side of the Island in a calm day in June.This is where we land our guest from Lundy Castaway who can then follow the winding path to the top of the Island with stunning views back to the main land and over the main anchorage. A good cool drink in the Marisco Tavern always goes down well.
Picture to the left is the North West rugged side of Lundy with the North light that warns ships to stay well clear of the treacherous rocks that lie well off the North end of the Island. This side of Lundy takes the full strength of the Artlantic waves.
