On the tide (3-4 hrs)

Before and after High Water there is on average at least 4 hours of water depending on state of tide, wind direction, atmopsheric pressure and the boat's draft

A day sail (8 hrs)

We use the morning tide to sail to a particular location along the coast, then drop the anchor and explore the creeks and sand banks at low tide. We have to walk off the marsh, get picked up by taxi and return you to Wells.

A day sail (12 hrs)

We use the morning tide to reach a specific location, explore the area at low tide, or stay at sea, and then wait for the evening tide to be able to sail back to our HQ in Wells.

An overnight sail

We use the morning tide to sail along the coast and either drop the anchor in a protected spot, or stay at sea until the evening tide. We stay overnight and then use the morning tide to return to our HQ in Wells.
