Wetlands Discovery Boat Ride

  • Between 11.00 and 15.00 
  • £3.00 per person 
  • Booking will availability will pop up when you book your tickets 

A trip on the Wetland Discovery boat safari lasts 20 minutes. On your journey a driver will identify and point out the wildlife, plants, fish and insects all around you. 

The boat takes you through the wet meadow, which has highest diversity of plant species on the reserve, then onto the woodland carr, which is full of water loving willows and black poplar. This area is popular with little grebes, which nest on branches sitting in the water. 

The back section of Wetlands Discovery is the reed bed, the best place to see and hear water voles crunching on shoots. Your guide will help you spot elusive sedge and reed warblers flitting in and out of their reed bed nests. The boats offer excellent view of the birds of prey soaring on the thermal of the Offham Hangar. 

The boat safari runs rain or shine, 11.00 - 3:00 pm on every day except Christmas (although trips may be cancelled in very icy conditions). The boat must be booked in advance of your visit. 

Each boat can accomodate 4 people and the boats are accessible for non-motorized wheelchairs (one wheelchair per trip). Life jackets are available and must be worn by those 7 years and under, all children must be accompanied by an adult.
