TO SEE THE SEALSSorry Event Full

11am prompt departure from Itchenor Jetty. Please arrive early.


This is a special 3 hour cruise almost right around the Harbour to hope to see some of the approximately 30 seals who have made their home on the mud banks. You will be accompanied by John Arnott, our wildlife expert.

It might be a good idea to bring along a picnic lunch to enjoy as we cruise around the Harbour, hopefully on a lovely sunny day with a light breeze.

There will be complementary tea, coffee and hot chocolate on board. If you’d like to bring anything else to drink you are very welcome to do so.

Please don’t forget your cameras and dress appropriately for the weather. It is always much colder on the water and you cannot move around a lot to keep warm.

Cost: £15 Members £20 Guests

Your Host will be Ginny Kidd. Please meet her at the shore end of the jetty and only proceed down the jetty when you have been checked off on the passenger list and invited to go down the jetty to board.

Please note that the Solar Boat Cruise is subject to the wind speed and may have to be cancelled if it is likely to be too windy on the day.
