PlyMouth International - Action and activities that involve parents and kids are plentiful - as are rainy day outings. If stories of gnarly seadogs whet your appetite for adventure out on the big blue sea there are plenty of opportunities to explore by water.
Plymouth Sound and the rivers that flow into it bustle with crafts large and small and a fantastic network of water taxis, foot ferries, sightseeing tours and fishing trips offer great family friendly ways to explore.
Hop on a ferry
From Stonehouse make the ancient crossing to Mount Edgcumbe via the Cremyll Ferry. The ferry route here dates back to the 11th century and carries passengers over the River Tamar to the beautiful country park, ideal for a day exploring or relaxing, with plenty of room to kick a ball, ride bikes or fly a kite.
Experience Plymouth from the water
Join a Tamar Cruise from the Barbican to experience Plymouth from the water and discover the weird and wonderful wildlife that calls our waterfront home. If you prefer a little more adrenaline then the Mount Batten Watersports Centre, accessible via the Mount Batten Ferry from the Barbican, offers sailing, kayaking and special family fun days.
Largest Tank in Europe
Get below the waves over at the National Marine Aquarium where the whole family can get up close and personal with the fascinating underwater world from the shores of Plymouth to the coral reefs of the tropics.
We Bought a Zoo
Want to get up close and personal with a whole menagerie of animals? Pay a trip to the soon to be world famous Dartmoor Zoo, just a few miles outside Plymouth. The Zoo is the inspiration behind the new Cameron Crowe movie ‘We Bought a Zoo’ starring Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson, released in the UK in March 2012 and is bound to be a popular choice for animal lovers of all ages.
