About Whitby Coastal Cruises Ltd

Whitby Coastal Cruises is a family run business started in 2001, as Whitby Harbour Cruises, by the owner Bryan Clarkson. Our first boat was 12 seater Dutch lifeboat named Dash, which used to run river trips around Whitby Harbour. These trips were so successful Dash was replaced by the larger vessel Skylark and in 2002 the harbour trips were changed to part harbour & sea trips.

Following two successful years Skylark was replaced by the 50 seater Esk Belle I. The company name was changed to Whitby Coastal Cruises Ltd. and trips to Staithes & sea trips were added as part of a new experience.

In 2005 the 120 seater Esk Belle II replaced Esk Belle I. This was an exciting year for the company, as Bryan's son (David) joined the company and became part of the business. Esk Belle II also took part in the fleet review at Portsmouth, acting as liberty boat ferrying sailors to and from all the navy boats & submarines taking part in the review.

The business has continued to grow offering sunset and twilight cruises as well as daily & Staithes specials. In 2009 we were delighted to win Tourism Experience of the Year Award with Yorkshire Moors & Coast.
