On Open Days there is no need to book – just turn up on the 'hammerhead' at the end of the jetty on the day. Boats depart and return at regular intervals.

For a small minimum donation (£6.00 adults, £3.00 children) you can enjoy a wonderful afternoon out; the price also includes a Cream Tea at the shed for adults, juice and a biscuit for children. 

You can also hire the Packing Shed for special events - contact our Bookings Secretary, Bry Mogridge, on 01206 385123, for further details.  Also see Hiring the Shed for availability.
