Enjoy a tour of Plymouth Sound on the historic barge 'LYNHER', built in 1896 to move cargo along the Plymouth waterways.
'LYNHER' is the only historic boat representing the Plymouth maritime heritage that is still in commission. Her broad beam and solid displacement provide a stable and safe environment for passengers to sit and enjoy the landscape in all comfort.
Board 'LYNHER' at the Barbican landing next to the Mayflower Steps, and experience setting off from this historic landmark before sailing towards the Breakwater. Circumnavigate Plymouth Sound under sail with the option to take part in the sailing hands-on, or simply relax on deck.
Imagine how the Pilgrims would have felt leaving the Breakwater and Plymouth behind, looking at the vast expand of water separating them from a long-awaited life away from persecution.
Continue to sail into Cawsand Bay and back north of the Breakwater, past Drake's Island - originally known as St Nicholas' Island and now known as Drake's Island in honour of Francis Drake, who set sail from Plymouth in 1588 to defeat the Spanish Armada.
Then return to the Barbican after a three-hour adventure to explore further features related to the Mayflower 400 commemorations.
Plymouth Sound, the Breakwater, views of Drake's Island, the Citadel, the Barbican, Mountbatten Tower from the water.
