The Southern Comfort, located in Horning on the Norfolk Broads, is a double-deck Mississippi Paddle Boat purpose built for the Broads with a capacity of 100 passengers for public trips or private hire.
Our boat is a luxury river cruiser which runs regular trips from the beautiful village of Horning, along the River Bure through the village and out to Ranworth Broad and back, passing lovely old thatched houses, windmills and Norfolk reed beds.
Throughout the trip there is an excellent commentary and continual pointing out of all the water birds around at the time. There is the ever present bustle of river traffic with cruisers, yachts and the occasional wherry.
Our fantastic luxury river trips are either one and a half hours or two hours in length
The upper deck has seating for 68 passengers and provides excellent views across the reed beds - the lower deck has a plush lounge seating 46 and also has a fully stocked bar at reasonable prices. Snacks, souvenirs and freshly made tea and coffee are available throughout each tour.
There are toilets on the vessel. Wheelchairs are welcome and can be wheeled aboard. Group discounts are offered, telephone booking is strongly recommended however small the number of people.
Come on Summer!
Bookings for boating trips are now well underway for this season and we will be running a nearly full schedule. Evening cruises usually get going around the end of June, but if there is a group we will run one for you. Early season is our favourite time of year, so quiet with only a little other boat traffic about.
So a great time to see the broads. Some river trips are already filling up so booking by telephone is advisable
