BOAT TRIPS RUN ALL DAY EVERYDAY

Lady Grace Boat Trips runs the 20 minute trips 7 days a week all year round, times vary based on the time of year but you can always ring to check operating times for the day.  No need to book, just turn up at the end of the jetty and wait for the boat to return.  We have no sets times, we just leave whenever anyone would like to go and there is no minimum number required either so we can leave with as little as one person on board.  The 20 minute trip costs just £3 per person, its the same price for children, babies and OAP's, everyones the same price.  The 20 minute trip consists of a gentle relaxing trip around the Packing Shed Island where they used to pack the oysters back in the 1850's, you can still see the remains from the old oyster beds today.  We can operate at all states of tide; if you come out near low water then we are likely to see a variety of wading birds on the mudflats or if you come on high tide you will see Mersea Island from a completely different perspective motoring past a variety of different moored pleasure and working boats.  This trip is suitable for individuals, families, groups and schools. 

I also offer a variety of longer trips from sunset picnic trips, tea and cakes trips, pirate parties, wedding blessings, bird watching and a service for visiting yachtsmen.  To find out more about the longer trips please click here.

I am a photographer of all things beautiful on the water, whether it be a landscape, sunrise, sunset or wildlife - I capture it behind my lens and you can view and buy my photographs on canvas, HD metal and all occasion cards.  I published my first book, Daffodil's Journey Home, in October 2016, based on a true story of an abandoned duckling that escapes the clutches of a fox and comes to live with me until she is old and well enough to be released back to the wild.  My second book, Seabirds on the Seashore, was published in March 2017 sharing with you my passion for the wildlife I see on a daily basis out on Lady Grace, it is both educational as well as being a lovely cute story sharing the cheeky characteristics of the wading birds.  It has equal measures of happiness and sadness as you follow Sidney Spoonbill and Edith the Little Egrets' adventures. These books are available on my website through my online shop to buy, you can view these items by clicking here. They make wonderful Christmas and Birthday presents!

20 Minute Voyage

General 20 minute trips – I offer these trips all day every day through the year on my 21ft open launch licenced for 12 passengers. The trip is a local harbour trip around the Packing Shed Island. Approximately 20 minutes. On a clear day you can see the Clacton wind turbines from a distance and Bradwell Power Station can also be seen. On your boat trip you will pass many different pleasure and cruising yachts, motorboats, oyster dredging boats and fishing boats.

There is the possibility of seeing the seal and there are also many different bird life species that are attracted to Mersea Islands’ tranquil area of marshlands and mud banks, including turnstones, curlews, cormorants, egrets as well as the common tern and herring gull.

A very enjoyable and relaxing boat ride.  Maximum of 12 people for boat trips. However, a full boat of 12 people is not needed, we leave as and when people would like to go, with as little as 1 person aboard.

Children are welcome as long as they are supervised by an adult. £3 per person for a 20-minute boat trip. The Lady Grace runs 7 days a week. Great fun for children, particularly as a birthday treat for them and their friends. Longer boat trips can be booked in advance to secure a time and place aboard, or alternatively you can turn up on the day and wait for the boat to return to the hammerhead for a short 20 minute trip. I offer the longer trips for special occasions such as Birthdays and Wedding Anniversaries, check out my themed party trips
