About us

Be one of the first to set foot on Drake’s Island in 2022 as we open for guided tours.
Starting your tour from Mount Batten pier, you will take the ferry through Plymouth Sound to the Island. Keep your eyes peeled for some amazing island wildlife as you arrive, particularly the seals which like to nap on the rocks, land on the jetty and learn about the seagrass that is under your feet.

Your tour will last 2 hours during which time, you will learn about the history of the island as you walk the old paths, steps and tunnels. Who was held prisoner on the Island, is the island part of Devon or Cornwall…..plus much more.

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 4 giant cannons still on the island, the casemates, the new discoveries we are making every week and how the Island plays its part in supporting local communities and charities.
