Salt Marsh Sailing
A north Norfolk Salt Marsh exploration involves a sail through the protected creeks, in either the engineless mussel flat or the crab boat and on very high tides the whelk boat; We sail off the pontoon at the very start of the tide from East Quay, Wells-Next-the-Sea, as the sea flows into the salt marsh until the waters are static at high tide about 2 hrs later. We then pause for an hour or so to enjoy a hot drink and one of Norfolk’s best locally sourced meals, which could include local artisan sourdough, Norfolk cheeses, locally made pies and more. We then use the outgoing tide to sail us back to the pontoon at Wells. Sail north Norfolk!
3 -4 hours, depending on tides, weather and the light.

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!
