Each visit starts with the fun of a boat trip from Looe’s bustling fishing harbour. Once landed on the island you will have 3 hours to be introduced to the fascinating nature and history of Looe Island. You will find out how the Atkins sisters bequeathed the island to the Cornwall Wildlife Trust and discover how work continues to keep the island special.
