If you had read our previous blog post - Havergate Island Blog – June 29 – July 20 2018 written by our residential volunteer Mike, then he just may have inspired you to visit Havergate Island to see if you can see any of the amazing wildlife that he was lucky enough to have seen on his visit.
This is the perfect time of year to explore our wild isle (the only island in Suffolk), and our special Havergate Adventure, taking place in a couple of weeks, will help you get the most out of your visit, whatever your age or interests. Whether you want to learn more about the island’s wildlife, or just enjoy the charm and serenity of this special place, the knowledgeable RSPB Woodbridge Local Group members will treat you to a two hour guided tour that fits the bill.
Access to the island is, unsurprisingly, by boat only, so a trip to the island helps you really feel you're getting away from it all. Boats for the Havergate Adventure leave Orford Quay every hour from 9.30 am to 1.30 pm between Saturday 18 – Monday 20 August.
Homemade refreshments will be available to purchase and binoculars available to borrow so you don’t miss out on anything!
So, if you fancy going on this adventure with your family and would like to book onto a trip please take a look at our booking page here.
Boats leave Orford Quay every hour from 09.30 to 13.30. Trips last approx. 2 hours 40 minutes and include a 2 hour guided tour of part of the island. Price: £15 for adults; £3 for under 16s. However, the boat can only carry a maximum of 12 passengers and demand is likely to be high, so early booking is strongly recommended.
