What a great trip out, a must if you are in the area. Ross was very friendly and knowledgeable about his subject. AS he said though, this is real, you could go and see nothing. Wildlife done have a timetable. Take a covering as it...More

What a gem! We really enjoyed our gentle trip around Horsey Mere and Staithe, looking for birds (but often failing!) and simply enjoying the gentle pace and view. Ross is very knowledgeable and entertaining. It was a most pleasant trip.

We would highly recommend this trip. It was informative yet relaxed, the boat was clean and a well presented safety briefing was given before we started. There are facilities near by that can be used before or after the trip. The wildlife we sore was...More

Wanted a boat trip whilst we were in Norfolk. So glad we chose this when we later went to Wroxham and saw the crowds. It was a nice relaxing trundle in the boat through the water to see a variety of wildlife with informative talk...More
