The second year we have done the boat trip with Ross and it was just as good as the first time. Ross kept us entertained with his knowledge for the entire trip, not that you needed it on the beautiful broads.

Our trip with Ross was the highlight of our holiday as we had the amazing experience of a bittern flying low right over the boat. Ross is so knowledgeable about the Broad and very entertaining. A great trip.

We had a great trip with Ross on the Broads. Fascinating history, lots of wildlife including several Marsh Harriers, and all our party was entertained for the whole time, including grandad, kids and the dog! We'll be doing it again next year

Very informative and relaxed trip. A great way to spend an hour away from the crowds on the broads amongst the wildlife with knowledgeable and enthusiastic Ross. Great value and we will certainly repeat the experience through the changing seasons.

I would have thought so... just be aware that there is a sign to 'mind your head' as you get on the boat. So you will need to be able to duck slightly as you step down. Ross is very helpful to anybody getting on so I cannot... More
