Designed for participants who would like to experience a slower, more relaxed introduction to Wetwheels Yorkshire, this experience does not leave the harbour and head out to sea but rather takes a more relaxed route around Whitby's historical harbour and, when tides are suitable, up the Esk Estuary towards Ruswarp and the iconic viaduct.
Our harbour tours are designed to reassure participants who haven't yet been on board Wetwheels Yorkshire in the hope that they will gain enough confidence to return for the full sea'going adventure. Speeds are restricted on this tour.
Participants may encounter a variety of birds including the possibility of cormorants and kingfishers, and we regularly see seals and leaping salmon on the river.
Where possible, participants may even get the opportunity to access the helm and steer the boat.
