As most other people said, this a really nice trip around the bay, being able to see west Mersea from another perspective and be able to talk with someone who know the island well, all for three quid! Do not miss.

For just £3 each The Lady Grace is superb value for money for a 20 min trip out to sea looking at the boats and wildlife of Mersea. Very peaceful..time to chill out and take in the scenery. Highly recommended.

Well worth doing if you are on Mersea Island, Great experience and brilliant value for money only £3 each. The Trip may only be 20mins but it is around the whole harbour of West Mersea.

Helped by the lovely weather we enjoyed a pleasant boat trip around the oyster shed in the estuary back to west Mersea. A lovely trip and good value too.
