Tickets: £95 per person, including a donation to Rutland Water Nature Reserve, cruise, supper and wine.
We have booked the Rutland Belle for an evening this June. Our cruise combines a delicious supper with an opportunity to enjoy the beautiful scenery around Rutland Water from on board the Rutland Belle and we hope to catch a glimpse of an Osprey or two. A member of the Rutland Nature Reserve Osprey team will be on board to act as a spotter and point out the diverse bird life we have around the shores of Rutland Water. The Rutland Belle is a tidy craft with a charming crew. Unless the weather is foul we sit on deck but can go below should the weather change. It can be cool when the Belle fires up her twin diesels and surges forward at 4½ knots, so don’t dress too skimpily!
We leave the pier at Whitwell at 7.00pm sharp and the ship opens the gang plank at 6.30pm. We return you to your car at 9.30 for 10.00pm. We can provide binos but if you have your own bring them along and perhaps a hat and rug.
