We enjoyed our trip very much and saw and learned a lot about the area from Ross. However, we would like to apologise for the dog and his squeaky toy.

This was a very enjoyable and informative hour. Ross is very entertaining with his local knowledge and passion for the wildlife. Would definitely recommend this trip and we will certainly take it again when we are back in the area.

This was a fantastic one hour trip. Ross is knowledgeable and entertaining. We saw a Marsh Harrier, cuckoo, nesting great crested grebe, swallowtail butterfly and many dragonflies. The broads are a haven, the sun was shining-we really enjoyed this trip and would highly recommend it

What a wonderful way to spend an hour. Ross provided a running commentary that was both informative and amusing. Having not seen swallowtails for over 40 years it was a delight to see them in their natural habitat. With the hectic life we all seem...More

I would have thought so... just be aware that there is a sign to 'mind your head' as you get on the boat. So you will need to be able to duck slightly as you step down. Ross is very helpful to anybody getting on so I cannot... More
