The Itinerary

The experience starts early typically soon after sunrise 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, you will then put on our life jackets  and collect your mini breakfast bag 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 after circa 1.5hrs up stream back to Goring Lock.

If you would like us to book you in afterwards for a more hearty Breakfast at The Coppa Club - Streatley, please select that option at checkout.

What will we see?

Every trip is different but regulars include 4-6 breeding pairs of Kingfisher on the route, the possibility of Mandarin Ducks, Little Egret, Great Crested Grebes which pop up right next to the boat and normally a few Grey Herons and Cormorants that always looked surprised to see us. Also Geese and ducks flying low down the river as well as an array of other sightings which you would not normally witness without being on a 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"
