A very calm and tranquil trip down the river on a sunny Sunday in April.

Cruising past the small yachts tacking up the river and into the countryside marshes to the village of Burgh St Peter and back.

We saw Marsh harriers, Deer, Herons and Swans too.

Very enjoyable cruise and very helpful staff too.

There is a small cafe on the bank at Oulton to relax in afterwards and have a toastie under the Cherry blossom.

Cannot recommend this service to highly its very well organised for all disabilities the crew could not be more helpful and considerate to passengers of all ages and make good tea/coffee !
The service needs to be more acknowledged in general.

This fabulous boat is amazing - wheelchair friendly - and even has an on-board lift. It`s centrally heated, and spacious. The volunteer crew were very friendly and offer you tea/coffee and biscuits, although you can take your own food. Highly recommend this experience for wheelchair users - they can take up to 6.

Thank gegby

We hired Waveney Stardust for a day our for some of our disabled congregation at at Witard Road Baptist Church, plus some of us older members who just wished to enjoy a day out amid the peace of the beautiful Norfolk broads.
What a wonderful day out, the Waveney stardust boat itself is very well equipped with good facilities and excellent safety for disabled passengers.
The Skipper and his Mate were delightful, looking after us verywell, keeping us informed and well supplied with cups of tea or coffee and biscuits. A huge thankyou to both of you for making this such a great day out.
Already there are plans afoot for another outing in the future.
