20 Minute Trips - 1st January - 31st December

I offer my trips 7 DAYS A WEEK THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE YEAR, operating times as follows:

January 9am-4pm ~ February & March 9am-4.30pm ~ April - October 9am-5pm (6pm at weekends during August) ~ November 9am-4.30pm ~ December 9am-4pm.

Please note: the last trip of the day will be 30 minutes before the above stipulated finishing times. It is adviseable not to leave your trip until the end of the day if possible as this will avoid your disappointment if the boat is full and cannot fit you on the last trip. 

Please check the below events listing titled 'Times to Avoid' with the relevant month you are planning to visit to ensure I do not have any longer trips booked in at the time you plan to visit.

If you are looking for one of my longer trips or would like more information on these trips please click here. All longer trips must be booked and paid for in advance to secure your booking.
