2 Hour Picnic Trip

2 Hour Picnic Trip

Cost: £180 for up to 11 people.

2 hour picnic trip - a trip up the creek to stop and have a picnic while
moored up before returning back to port.

Why not hire the boat for 2 hours, have a gentle cruise up Salcot Creek where we will pick up a mooring buoy, turn the engine off and listen to the peaceful serene creek birdlife.  Majestic egrets wading along the shoreline, distant curlew calling, oystercatchers flying over head, common terns chirping along the water's edge and marsh harrier swirling over their prey along the top of the seawall.  All this to occupy you while you bring along your very own picnic or seafood platter to enjoy before heading back on our way home. This is a very popular trip for lunch picnics and even more popular as an evening event. If you speak to the skipper at the time of your booking, where the tides allow, sometimes we can organise this trip to time perfectly over sunset. If you want to book this trip over sunset the price tiers are as follows:

Cost: £220 for up to 12 people 

Places to order a pre-packed picnic from:

The Mersea Deli

The Dukes Seafood

Please note: the above prices do not include food or drinks, this is your own responsibility and cost to you. I do not offer options to include food on this trip as there are so many different categories of intolerances, allergies, preferences etc that it is impossible to cater for everyone and amongst all my other commitments and trips I do not have the time to organise this for you. 

To book the above trip please drop me a text on 07791 859624 with your preferred date, what type of trip you are interested in and for how many people and I will have a look at the tides and see what is available for the day. Please bear in mind that due to the nature of my business I may not be able to answer your call or text immediately if I have a passengers onboard at the time of you call or text. However, leave me a voice message or drop me a text and I will respond at my earliest convenience.

Booking in advance is essential and payment upfront to secure your booking is required in full at the booking stage without exception.

Prior to booking your trip with me please ensure you read the Pre-Booking Notes.
