Suggested Launch Site - At the end of the quay carpark(charge will apply) but it is very easy to put on and take off as the quay slopes into the water. The quay is never busy and there is plenty of room.

General Description - This trip is tide dependent and can be as long or as short as you like. Tides locally can be checked on the web

If you go out on one tide then launch and return 3 hours each side of high tide.

If the tides are right then you can go out in the morning and return in the evening.

The National Trust have produced a water-proof map of the estuary which can be bought locally - Tourist Information on the quay carpark.

Wildlife on the water; Kingfishers, Curlew, Little Egrets, shrimp, Grey Mullet even the occasional seal.

Wonderful water, we launched from our boat and paddled up Frogmore Creek, tide was coming in and we had to wait for the creek to fill as we went. September trip and we had fantastic sighting of migrating osprey catching fish!
