The Chichester Harbour Water Tours offer a chance to ride the Wingate, originally a rescue vessel on board a cruise ship, now dedicated to nature jaunts and bird watching cruises ideal for families!
You'll see some of the 12,000 boats resident in the harbour and explore the Sandy Point by Hayling Island, East Head, Emsworth, the Thorny Island Channels, Bosham and Dell Quay.
A wide variety of habitats dictates a variety of fascinating eco systems including sand dunes, mudflats, shingle banks and woodlands, all valuable refuge for sea birds and other interesting species of wildlife. Ideal for your little twitchers, so take along your binoculars and camera!
There's no need to book for groups of under 10 people, so you can make it a surprise if you like, then if the weather's bad you can change plans without them knowing!
You can also extend your trip further by taking the ferry from Itchenor over the channel to Bosham Hoe, from which it is a half hour walk to historic Bosham town for exploring.
Plus the Harbour manages 2 charter fishing boats which offer half day excursions for fishing families and younger folk, with all equipment supplied and expert assistance on hand throughout. Sounds like fish for dinner!
