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!

Why not take a fascinating wildlife boat trip and see some of the amazing birds and creatures we have along this coastline. 

You might see the Mersea Seal or even a porpoise!

You probably don't realise just how many different species of birds and other wild life creates inhabit our shoreline around the Mersea area, Stacey will point out many different birds and other wild life as we come across them.  You never know what you will see and every trip is different!

Bird & Wildlife watching trips are available during November through until April.  We will take a slow ride up the local creeks including Salcot creek, Ray Channel, around the Packing Shed Island out Mersea Fleet, up the Strood and take a ride round the Great and Little Cob Islands in Tollesbury depending on the length of trip booked.

Wildlife and bird watching Groups and Clubs all welcome.

To hire the whole boat I charge a flat fee of £50 per hour for the whole boat which is licensed for up to 12 people but I would suggest a maximum of 6 so that you don't get in one another's way and everyone has plenty of room.  I have a variety of different trips I can offer for the bird watching so please call me on 07791859624 with the date you are after and what length trip you are after booking and I will have a look at the tides to see what is available for the day.

For those of you that don't know your birds that well, Stacey has recently created her very own bird app which has a series of yes/no questions you follow to identify which birds you are looking at.  This app is available on iPhone, iPad and android devices.
