Waveney River Tours have been sailing on Suffolk's Broads & Rivers since 1970.
Our friendly crew are always delighted to share their knowledge of this ecologically diverse region with you as we explore these ancient marshland landscapes.
Our tours start beside Mutford Lock a restored Sea Lock which is frequently in operation allowing coastal craft access to the Broads.
Based here is the Waveney Princess equipped with an open top deck and offering panoramic views over the Broadland landscape. Reed Warblers and Reed Buntings can often be heard singing from the reed beds as we sail past and Marsh Harriers sometimes fly with us alongside the boat.
