Waveney Stardust - Boat Trips
The 2017 Schedule of cruises is now published and available on our website and our booking system. 2017 is our 25th Cruising Year and we look forward to seeing our customers old and new on the water through the year.
Cruise the unspoilt River Ant and into the River Bure. The Ant is one of the prettiest rivers on the Broads winding alternately through open marshland, heavily wooded reaches and the open waters of Barton Broad. With a whole day you have a choice of some of the favourite Broads destinations - Barton Broad, Neatishead, Irstead, How Hill, Ludham Bridge, Ranworth Broad, Salhouse Broad, Wayford Bridge, Sutton and Dilham.
How far you get will depend on your ability to resist pausing at one of the many picturesque and peaceful locations for a picnic lunch or to sample the excellent food and drink on offer at one of the waterside hostelries.
Cruises start and finish at Stalham at times to suit you between 10am and 5pm.
Up to four hours to explore the River Ant from its most northerly limts (for us) at Dilham, Sutton and Stalham down through Barton Broad and Irstead. There are some wonderful places to pull up for a picnic on board alongside or swinging on the mudweight, and if you want one or two accessible pubs and restaurants.
With a maximum of four hours lunch ashore will restrict cruising time and if you would like to do this you may want to book a 'Day Cruise' instead to see more of the river.
Our boats are modern, comfortable, carpeted, centrally heated with wheelchair access and full toilet facilities for the disabled.
Access to the boats has been managed to ensure ease of access on foot using walking aids, your own wheelchair or through use of the onboard wheelchair. Walkways slope gently and are non-slip. The boat ramps and the wheelchair lifts are provided with guard rails.
Once on board, passengers are taken down to inside floor level by hydraulic lift. There are no steps to negotiate anywhere.
The disabled toilet facilities are large enough to accommodate large modern electric wheelchairs and two carers.
The boats are well ventilated with large opening windows and an opening roof. There is a deep cockpit well aft with safety rails from which to enjoy the river outside.
Passengers are welcome to bring food and drink on board. Our boats are equipped with plates, cups, glasses and cutlery. There is an oven for heating food if required, and a small fridge. Crews will help to accommodate the storage of items like ice cream and even a bottle of wine.
