The camping parts the easy part! Just Google lundy shore office, they require 24 hours notice. There is also a 6 landing fee to pay for private boats.

I will scan through the local tide times for May through to Mid July for now. Looking for weekends with suitable tide times.

Hi
I'm definitely up for a Lundy trip around July but would need to be a weekend.
Apple fore is the ideal launch site for me and camping would be great.
I'll follow this and look out for any confirmation of dates.

RIBase
Bude is also a good jump off point, about a 17nm trip out with some great coast line to explore.

If anyone fancies a longer run Portishead to Lundy is a good way to clear out the cobwebs.

about 90NM Steve. We launch from the Marina and come out through the Lock...

normally takes 3-4 hours in average conditions.
