Questions?

Below are some often asked questions - but please contact us if you have any others:

When can we go?

There are two tides a day, roughly twelve hours apart and the tide time shifts by about an hour a day, so we can organise at least one trip a day, every day between April and October. On many days there is the option to go out on the morning or afternoon tide. Late afternoons or early evenings can make for a very romantic 'sunset' cruise.

How long does a trip last?

We offer two types of trip, a private harbour tour lasts three to four hours which gives plenty of time to explore the harbour and costs £140 for up to twelve people. We also offer shorter trips to see the seals on Blakeney Point - these last about one and half hours and cost £12 per person (minimum £60 per trip).

How many people can the Lady K take?

The Lady K can comfortably seat twelve people, with plenty of storage for picnic hampers etc... and dogs are welcome too!

How much does a charter cost?

For the 2011 season a three to four hour private harbour tour costs just £140 for up to twelve people. We also offer a shorter one and half hour trip to see the seals on Blakeney Point, which costs £12 per person (minimum £60 per trip). Please contact us if you'd like more details.

What if it's raining?

We appreciate it's not much fun sitting on a boat for three or four hours in the pouring rain! So if the weather is very unpleasant we're happy to look at re-arranging your trip.

Do you provide life jackets?

Yes, we can provide life jackets for adults and children - although as we spend most trips inside the harbour area it's up to you whether you want to wear them or not.

What should we bring?

It can feel cooler on the water, so do bring extra layers and a wind proof top or warm coat. Even on a cloudy day it's a good idea to bring sun cream because of the reflection from the water and towels if you might be tempted to go for a paddle or swim! And, of course, binoculars and camera, plus plenty of food and drinks for your trip.

What about a picnic?

You're welcome to bring your own picnic or we can arrange one for you, prepared by W. Weston's seafood shop and packed with local delicacies. The cost for our picnic is £15 per person, which includes a mixed seafood platter, bread, butter and a glass of wine. We can also suggest a nice beach or cove for the picnic once we are out on the water.

What if somebody needs a 'comfort break'?

There are toilets in the old lifeboat station at Blakeney Point or we can always take a detour to Blakeney or Morston quays.

Recommendations for lunch?

If you would like to combine the trip with a meal nearby we'd recommend The White Horse, Moorings Bistro or Kings Arms in Blakeney, The Anchor in Morston or The Wiveton Bell in nearby Wiveton.

Places to stay in the area?

Blakeney Bolt Holes have a number of luxury cottages in and around Blakeney.
