Wildlife on the Water

Wildlife on the Water Experience!

Approx 3 hrs

The Itinerary

The experience starts at Goring on Thames (exact location will be sent in the Booking Confirmation), Pastries and Juice will be provided - please select your juice and pastry choice in the "add on" section.

Guests will be given a short introduction on arrival by Steve, your Wildlife Guide, and we will begin with a short walk (1 mile) along the river where Kingfishers and Otters are regularly seen.

We will then arrive at the boat and put on our life jackets before boarding and get comfortable on the boat. We head down river towards Lower Basildon on The River Thames where the distance and pace will completely depend on how much we see and hear, and any photos  we want to capture. We will turn back at circa 1hr and return to Goring.

If you would like us to book you in afterwards for a more hearty Breakfast please select that option at checkout.

What will we see?

Every trip is different but regulars include 2 breeding pairs of Kingfisher on the route, the possibility of a pair of Mandarin Ducks, Great Crested Grebes which pop up right next to the boat. Also formations of Geese and ducks flying low down the river as well as an array of other sightings we would have been unlikely to witness without being in the boat.

Love to do photography?

If you have questions around camera equipment or set up, it is advised you contact us in advance so this can be covered off either by message or in a short 121 Photography Session, to ensure you get the best out of your experience on the day, and can focus on your captures.

Don't worry if your not a photographer as Steve will share photos from the day afterwards.

Still not sure this is for you? - why not listen to BBC Radio Presenter Babs Michel talking about her experience on the boat last year. 

A Kingfisher is like a "Golden Snitch"
