Walberswick River Trips
We have now finished trips for 2023 but will be resuming trips from May 2024.
Come and join us on one of our boats, Daybreeze or Seafever, for a relaxing one-hour trip along the River Blyth in Suffolk. Our qualified skipper will take you on a journey through the Walberswick Nature reserve, an area of Outstanding National Beauty, towards Blythburgh. We will recount stories of local history, the changing coastline and recall some smuggling tales as you sit back and enjoy the stunning views and wildlife that our estuary has to offer. You may even be lucky enough to spot a seal and many of the beautiful birds that frequent our river.
Trips last approximately one hour and we can take up to ten passengers on each trip. Please arrive ten minutes before the time of your trip so we can fit you with life jackets.
Tickets cost £16.00 for adults (15 years+) and £8.00 for children (14 years and under) This ticket price includes a £5 non refundable booking fee.
Infants, under two, can travel free, although they must be included when booking.
Both boats are available for private hire - scroll down for more information
Private Boat Hire
Our boats are available for private hire for special occasions. We have had some amazing private trips so far including proposals, birthday parties, stag and hen parties, bird watching trips, corporate trips or just families getting together.
We are happy for you to bring your own picnics, and refreshments to have on the boat; this is especially popular on the evening sunset trips.
We charge £150.00 for the whole boat for one hour's exclusive hire and can take up to 12 passengers on each trip.

How to find us and where to park
Getting to us by car or foot
Our trip leaves from the Walberswick side of the River Blyth opposite the Southwold to Walberswick Foot Ferry.
We operate from the Walberswick Ferry hut, at the ferry near to the public car park on Ferry Road, Walberswick, IP18 6TJ.
There are two car parks in Walberswick, Ferry Road Car Park and the Beach Car Park. Ferry Road Car Park is only a few minutes walk from us. If you are arriving from the Southwold side there is parking on the Harbour Car Park and then you can walk over the Bailey Bridge (1.5 mile walk) or take the foot ferry open 10:00 until 17:00 daily from Easter to October 2022. The ferry costs £2.00 per adult and £1.00 per child for each crossing.
We will endeavor to get back to you as quickly as possible but please remember that during the Summer Season we may be on the boat until the evening with no access to the internet.
