2 Hour Picnic Trip

Category: Range of Trips

Cost: £100 for up to 6 people
          £180 for up to 12 people 

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: £150 for up to 6 people
          £220 for up to 12 people

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. 

To book the above trip please give me a call on 07791 859624 to discuss your preferred date and I will have a look at the tides to 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 immediately if I have a passengers onboard at the time of your call. However, leave me a voice message and I will return your call 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.

You are only eligible for the 2-tier price option that is based on the size of your group if you book in advance, if you leave it until the day of the trip before making a booking then you will fall into the 'up to 12' price category regardless of the size of your group without exception.

If you do not wish to share the boat with another group, you will need to pay the 'up to 12 people' price to hire the whole boat for just your group otherwise you may have to share the boat with another group of up to 6 people whom you do not know.

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