All aboard Whitby’s Bark Endeavour

The authentic replica of HMS Endeavour, which was sailed by Captain James Cook during his scientific expeditions of 1748 has be traditionally built by Whitby craftsmen and stands in the water some 40% of the original ships size.

Climb on board Whitby’s Bark Endeavour for one of the regular sailings throughout the year and embark on a voyage around the harbour and along the coast to Sandsend, where you will follow the path of Cook himself and re-live his life at sea.

A trip on Whitby’s Bark Endeavour is more then just a simple pleasure cruise. Enjoy stunning views of North Yorkshire’s Jurassic Coastline, with it’s interesting geological features and wealth of fossils and minerals, including the famous Whitby Jet. You can also spot a rich variety of wildlife, including many different types of sea bird, seals and occasionally porpoise, dolphins and whales.

Sit back, relax and immerse yourself in the dramatic coastal surroundings, while listening to traditional Whitby sea shanties and learning about the life of Captain Cook, before returning to your cottage nestled on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors and Coast. We guarantee that it will be a trip to remember.
