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.
