There are two options, either sail in the crab boat, on the tide, through the creeks or a day sail along the coast in the whelker.
If you would like to make a day of it, then the whelker is the best options. We sail out of Wells harbour early on the morning tide, passing the beach huts then cross Wells bar heading out to the North Sea, heading east to Blakeney Point one of north Norfolk's most famous landmarks at home to the largest concentration of seals. Breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea is created from Norfolk’s best locally sourced food.
For a tidal sail in the crab boat we head east from Wells through a secret network of creeks, through Stiffkey and then via Blakeney pt.
Whelker day sail, 6-10 hours, followed by a short walk to our Land Rover, then we drive you back to Wells, which takes about 30 m or if you prefer we can sail back into Wells on the evening tide.
Crab boat tidal sail, 4 hours, followed by a pick up and drive back to Wells.
Our 30’ lug cutter rigged Whelk Boat, which can take a maximum of 8 pax, or we can also go to sea in the 20’ lug rigged crab boat, which takes 6 pax.
Charter the entire whelk boat for the day for £980. Or £625 for the crab boat.
We work with local food producers to provide some of the best of Norfolk’s sustainable food. Breakfast is typically bacon and eggs with tea or locally ground coffee or a vegetarian option such as halloumi cheese, mushrooms and tomatoes and for lunch we serve a light picnic or if it is cold, soup. We also serve homemade cake which could vary from flapjack to lemon drizzle cake to chocolate cake.
No experience is required, we are super flexible, so you can either drive the boat and handle the sails or just sit back and relax!
