Spotlight on a Tamar Valley Tourism Member : Plymouth Boat Trips

Sundowner - Plymouth Boat Trips Boat at Sunset
Plymouth Boat Trips is the South West’s premier cruising, ferry and fishing company. From sight-seeing cruises, private charters and party nights to connecting ferries and fun packed fishing trips – there’s something for everyone.

One of the highlights of the Plymouth Boat Trips calendar is The British Fireworks Championships. Every year, our fleet of boats sail into Plymouth Sound where the best firework companies in the country wow the crowds with dazzling displays in the skies above.

The spectacular two-day event has been held on Plymouth Hoe since it began in 1997 and attracts more than 100,000 visitors from all over the country and beyond every year.

Plymouth became the favoured location as it provides a natural amphitheatre where large scale pyrotechnics can be safely watched from a variety of points around the harbour and Sound.

Undoubtedly, the best view is on the water from one of our vessels, where you can relax in comfort on board, and truly soak up the atmosphere of this special event.
