Havergate Adventure

Saturday 15 August to Monday 17 August

The RSPB boat 'October Storm' will leave from Orford Quay hourly from 9.30am to 1.30pm.

Price: £15 for adults; £5 for under 16s. However, the boat can only carry a maximum of 12 passengers and demand is likely to be high, so early booking is strongly recommended.

Booking essential

Join us on one of Havergates most popular trips – The Havergate Adventure.

For just 3 days in August the RSPB's annual Havergate Adventure organised and guided by The RSPB Woodbridge Local Group will take place. We want to introduce you to birds and other wildlife that is found on Havergates wild lagoons whatever your age or experience. Homemade refreshments will be available to purchase and binoculars available to borrow on free loan so you do not miss out on anything. 

Boats leave Orford Quay every hour from 09.30 to 13.30. Trips last approx. 2 hours 40 minutes and include a 2 hour guided tour of part of the island.

Refreshments and toilet facilities are available on the island and binoculars are also available on free loan.

Places on these trips are strictly limited because of the small capacity of the RSPB boat, so please book early. Places are strictly limited to 12 persons per boat so you are strongly advised to book in advance to avoid disappointment.

We recommend stout footwear, warm clothing, wet weather clothing and sun protection at all times of year.

You need to have a reasonable level of fitness for this trip because it requires getting on and off the boat and a lot of walking on uneven and sometimes muddy ground on the island.

In adverse weather conditions, the trip may be cancelled at short notice at the warden's discretion; in this case, you will get a full refund of your booking fee.
