The skipper (Stacy) let us all have a fun day on the boat! It was cheap for a family of 4. She spoke about the island and the places we passed on the water! I recommend it to everyone! (Photo taken on the boat)

Would be great if the sailor could also tell interesting stories about the Harbour and Mersea Island. As far as we understood, all people on the boat were not local, would be more entertaining with the stories.

A good way to see a little of the area. Lovely knowledgeable lady who takes the trips, around 20 mins or so for 3 quid each, would definitely recommend
