Attraction Information

Solar Heritage is a unique solar-powered boat for a trip on Chichester Harbour with a difference. From the moment you get on-board you will experience a warm welcome from the crew.

This wide boat with seats for 50, has plenty of room for moving around (once they have left the mooring) and enjoying the views and wildlife. You never know you might be lucky enough to catch sight of a seal or a peregrine falcon!

Solar Heritage trips are either themed trips such Harbour Nature or Harbour Discovery from Itchenor. In the summer months join a general one hour cruise from the harbour side village of Emsworth. Or why not book the whole boat for yourself and your friends?
