We went out on a Ross boat trip over a year ago, and with family staying recently, decided to treat grandchildren and others to Horsey Mere and the surrounding dykes. The scenery is beautiful and typically Norfolk, but I’m not so sure about doing it...More

What a gem! We really enjoyed our gentle trip around Horsey Mere and Staithe, looking for birds (but often failing!) and simply enjoying the gentle pace and view. Ross is very knowledgeable and entertaining. It was a most pleasant trip.

Cannot rate this boat trip highly enough. Ross is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and witty. As a wheelchair user he was extremely helpful getting me on and off the boat and I have to say not everyone is as helpful as Ross. Great morning out and...More

Wanted a boat trip whilst we were in Norfolk. So glad we chose this when we later went to Wroxham and saw the crowds. It was a nice relaxing trundle in the boat through the water to see a variety of wildlife with informative talk...More

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
