A beautiful, tranquil experience seeing the river in all its glory. Seeing wildlife that you may never have seen before and what better way to enjoy the peacefulness of the marshes and the river that even locals may not have even experienced. The skippers are so knowledgeable in what the do, and give 100% in making the trip enjoyable. A different way to spend a beautiful day, and even great when it's raining (brollys on board if you need them!) Great for all ages (my one year old daughter and 10 week old niece love it!)

The most enjoyable way to 'poodle' up and down the delightful River Waveney in an unhurried fashion. You get fantastic scenery and the jolly banter with crew and fellow passengers as a bonus. The shining light at the end of the mini voyage was a pint or two at the fab Locks Inn !! If you're in Beccles then this is a 'must do' !!

Absolutely fab, we have now used the ferry 3 times, planning a 4th as we just love the tranquility of the broads, the friendly banter and the knowledge of our skippers.. You will not be disappointed..it is well worth while planning your trip to spend time at the Geldeston Lock.. wonderful surroundings.. the pub is full of character. All in all this is a must, at least once.. but once done you'l be hooked.. xx
