Boston Belle Experiences
Seal and Birdwatching Cruise
Duration 5 hours
The programme of Seal and Birdwatching Cruises will take place in 2023, aboard the Boston Belle, sailing into The Wash and River Welland. The Wash is one of the UKs most important estuaries for wildlife. The coastline has some of the best saltmarsh and mudflats in the country supporting thousands of wildfowl and waders.
On the cruises you see habitats from the seaward side and get up close to the birds. Most years we see over 100 species can be spotted, averaging about 60 species per cruise. Sightings of waders include Plovers, Dunlin, Knot, Redshank and Godwits. In addition birds-of-prey are often seen, plus wildfowl. Harbour Seals are often seen. The cruises provide interest to all, from the avid birder to anyone with a genuine interest in nature. Each cruise is led by local RSPB Volunteer guides who can help with bird identification as well as pointing out places of local interest.
Additional cost: Refreshments are available on board the Boston Belle (which also has a toilet).
