Really enjoyed our afternoon on this boat. Crew so friendly and helpful. Commentary was informative but difficult to hear outside of cabin, due to other passengers noise but didn't spoil our fun. Look forward to going again.

Southern Comfort is a fraud: it's not really a paddle wheeler and it's the Bure not the Mississippi but it's a really nice excursion for those either too old, or with children too young, to go boating on their own account. The crew are very...More

Great day out for a trip up the broads. Very relaxing and very dog friendly. Good value for money. It was busy for a Sunday in March so would be worth reserving tickets in advance

Travelling up the Norfolk Broads from Wroxham to the Mississippi Paddle Boat was a lovely way to spend a half day for 2 novices on the water. Recommended.

There were 9 of us ranging in age from 6 to 65. The boat is beautiful and the staff were extremely pleasant and accommodating. If you are visiting the area, this is a fantastic couple of hours
