Glide along on our wetland discovery boat safari, a truly-memorable experience, for £3 per person.


The twenty-minute guided safari glides through wetland habitats, starting along the plant-filled wet meadow, onto the woodland carr. This is brimming with water loving willows and black poplar, look out for little grebes perching on the branches. The final section is the reed bed. This is the best place to see and hear water voles crunching on shoots.

Along the way your guide will identify and help you spot the wetland wildlife and plant life, including the elusive sedge and reed warblers flitting in and out of their reed bed nests. There are also excellent views from the boat of birds of prey soaring on the thermal of the Offham Hangar.

Our boat safari runs every day (except Christmas day) come rain or shine, between 11am and 4.30pm in the summer and 11am and 3.30pm in winter (some trips may be cancelled in very icy conditions).

Each boat holds 4 people and the boats are wheelchair accessible. Life jackets are available and all children must be accompanied by an adult.

You no longer need to book our boat safari in advance so please ask about availability and book when you arrive at admissions, on the day.

Our boat safari usually runs throughout the year but please bear with us as we continue to assess the situation and arrange boat safaris accordingly.
