Company background and technical information.
Our most popular trips are:- Schedules, Kids Pirate Parties, Family Trips, Bat Watching trips and Early Bird Trips.
NB- NATURE is the master. Although both boats have effective covers, postponements are often necessary to avoid extreme weather conditions or to avoid times of ’strong stream advice’ or ‘flood advice’ from the Environment Agency.
However TRIPS can become even more exciting in periods of steady rain or through the winter, spring and autumn seaons, when the very special conditions render the river even more beautiful than the summer season. Wildlife still continues its struggle and in these periods one can have the most spectacular encounters with Kingfishers, Herons, Sparrow Hawks, Cormorants and even the odd Otter, Mink or Grass snake. Occasionally seals also visit St Ives.
All our Skippers are RYA qualified and trained in river rescue techniques.
Both boats are insured for third party liability. On board rules apply. Life jackets for all on board if required. At least two life rings on board.
WHISPER & MEANDER are both insured to carry 12 passengers.
Trips are priced at £5.50 ADULTS, £3.00 Children and Pensioners
