Take a trip on the Lady Grace

Monday, January 25, 2016

Looking for something a little bit different to do when you come for a stay at your Seaview holiday home? A ride on the Lady Grace is the perfect solution! The Lady Grace is a 21ft open boat with speeds up to 8 knots, able to carry 12 passengers inside of the Blackwater Estuary. For just £3 per person, the Lady Grace will take you on a gentle and relaxing journey around the Packing Shed Island where back in the 1950’s, oysters used to be packaged. Today, the remains of the old oyster beds can still be seen.

The round trip takes approximately 20 minutes and the tour operates during all states of tide. There are no designated tour times so just show up whenever is convenient for you. Lady Grace trips operate 7 days a week all year round, with no set times and no minimum number of passengers, the trip will start when you are ready!

Operating in all states of tide means every trip is unique! During times of low water, you are likely to see a variety of wading birds on the mudflats, whereas during times of high water, you will get a stunning view of Mersea and a completely different perspective of the island as you gently motor past a huge variety of different moored pleasure and working boats.

The Lady Grace also offers longer trips for sunset picnic trips, tea and cake trips and even themed birthday parties! There’s not much the Lady Grace can’t cater for.

At Seaview Holiday Park, we offer amazing holiday retreats in the picturesque landscape of Mersea Island at very affordable prices, meaning you could be having adventures like a trip on the Lady Grace more regularly! Choosing a holiday home at Seaview Holiday Park will expand your horizons to a whole new lifestyle of relaxation!
