We are a traditional family run rowing boat service operating across the River Blyth from Southwold to Walberswick in Suffolk.
Our wooden rowing boats are based on the Suffolk punt design and carry up to 12 passengers at a time. Sometimes our motor launch is also used as a ferry if conditions are unsuitable for rowing, during winter, or if it is too busy that the small rowing boat cannot cope with the high volume of passengers.
