Our Sails

We use traditional Norfolk wooden fishing boats under sail to access the most mesmerising and hidden creeks, islands and salt marsh; the UK's last wilderness. Your professional skipper and crew will serve Norfolk's best table, all grown and crafted within 30 miles of our HQ. You will experience the ebb and flow of the tide and be surrounded by an abundance of wildlife and nature, allowing you to slow down and completely recharge your spirit.

Our boats are normally chartered by groups of friends or a family, but we also offer combined sails for individuals several times a month.
