• Our trips are usually from the King’s Lynn pontoon, along the lovely riverfront buildings and through open countryside towards the river mouth where we hope to see seals and other wildlife.
  • The round trip takes between 1½ hours and 2 hours.
  • We can customise the journey for private groups to vary the time taken or the distance travelled.
  • We are able to accommodate most needs. Please speak to us about any accessibility requirements that you may have.
  • Please feel free to get in touch with us at or via our Contact form.


    Passengers must be at least five years old.
    A confirmation email will be sent, which includes safety advice.
    Passengers should wear flat shoes and must remain seated in the hold unless invited ‘topside’ by a crew member.
    Warm clothing is recommended.
    We can only sail when the tide is high and when the weather is suitable. So, please leave a phone number (preferably mobile) so we can contact you if a trip needs to be cancelled.
    As a ‘not for profit Trust’ and with ever increasing costs, our charge of £20 per person per trip barely covers the cost of insurance, fuel, running repairs, paint, rigging maintenance and other liabilities. As a Trust run entirely by volunteers, we rely on your support for the trips.
    The trips usually leave from the Visitors’ Pontoon on King’s Lynn’s South Quay, near Marriott’s Warehouse Restaurant, PE30 5GN. Map here
