Boat Trips


Overton Lake,
Nene Park,
Ferry Meadows,


Why not take a relaxing, fun trip, on the Captain's Folly?
See Ferry Meadows from the water, with breathtaking views, whilst also learning!
The 30 minute trip takes you across the lake, down the estuary, into the river Nene, where you can enjoy the wonderful wildlife and take part in some bird watching.
See the ducks chase the boat, and if you're lucky, the fantastic blue kingfisher and other birds nesting.
Experience the beautiful tiers of blue bells in season on the river side walks, and learn about the history of the 17th century bridge and dungeon! Great fun for all ages!

Trips every day from 1st April to 31st October 12.00am to 17.00 pm subject to weather. Including all school Holidays.
