At this very difficult time, we want to reassure you that we are doing all we can to protect your health, our passengers and our colleagues. This is always our top priority and will continue to be so.

What you can expect from us:

*Booking is essential, as there are limited spaces, please call 01305 206191.

*We are reducing passenger numbers so that there is extra space on the boat.

*There will be a health and safety talk at the beginning of the trip which will cover the trip and current covid-19 safety information.

*Face coverings are not required outside but may be worn if preferred.

*There is hand sanitiser on board but we recommend that you bring your own (at least 60% alcohol) for regular use.

*Any bookings are based on current government advice and may be subject to change.

*We retain your details for track and trace but these will be destroyed after 21 days.

What we ask of you:

*If you or a member of your family or group have any covid-19 symptoms including a cough, cold, temperature or have experienced an unexplained loss or change in sense of taste or smell please ensure they stay home and follow the government guidelines on self-isolation.

* Once you have booked (see details above), please arrive 10 minutes early.

*Please be mindful of others' space.

*Children must be accompanied at all times.

*As spaces are limited, if you are booked onto a trip, please inform us as soon as possible if you are not able to attend so that we can offer your place to somebody else. This helps us invest more in local wildlife conservation.
