Bird & wildlife cruise

Join us for a very special bird and river wildlife enthusiasts cruise. Our knowledgeable skipper will provide a tailored commentary highlighting all the wildlife along the Thames you will see.

Starting from Windsor, you will see birds and wildlife of all varieties on this tour including the elusive Chinese mandarin duck as well as Cormorants, Mallard ducks and the Royal mute swan. Observe the flight of the Kingfisher with its shocking plumage of electric blue as it dives and splashes into the tranquil waters of the River Thames at Windsor as we cruise by.

Windsor’s riverbank has occasional sightings of amphibious creatures such as frogs and toads. Otters and Mink can also be seen stalking the riverbank whilst the prolific red kite soars overhead.

Why not book now online if you are planning a tour of Windsor to see the finest castle in the land from the water.

There is a choice of 2 sailings from Windsor Promenade, a morning trip with hearty ploughman's lunch and an afternoon trip with a full English tea.
