Drakes Island Tour

Thursday, August 26

Take a Ferry to Drake’s Island from Mount Batten Pier, Plymouth with our Guides and enjoy the Heritage of Drake’s Island.

Start your tour from Mount Batten pier and take the ferry through the Sound to the Island. Keep you eyes peeled for some amazing island wildlife as you arrive, particularly the seals which like to nap on the rocks!

Learn about the history of the island as you walk the old paths, steps and tunnels. View Plymouth and Cornwall from a whole new perspective as you climb to the highest part of the island, the perfect photo opportunity!

Our tour guides are experts and know everything there is to know about the island and how it has played it’s part in history. They can tell you all about the 3 giant canons still on the island, the casemates which make up the large curved structure facing out to sea and the new discoveries we are making every week!
