Osprey Cruises

One of the most exciting ways of seeing Ospreys at Rutland Water is to take a guided trip with members of the project team aboard the Rutland Belle and it’s not long now until our season of Osprey Cruises begins on 18th May.

The cruise, on board the Rutland Belle, follows on from an introductory talk on the project and details of the ospreys and other wildlife which we hope to see whilst out on the boat.

The dates for cruises this summer are…

Sunrise Cruises (with breakfast)
June 1st
July 6th & 20th
August 3rd

Evening Cruises (run on Wednesdays & Saturdays)
May 18th & 25th
June 5th & 15th (29th Fully booked)

In previous years we have been treated to unmissable views of Ospreys fishing in close proximity to the boat. Fingers crossed we will have the same luck this year! On the rare occasions when Ospreys prove elusive, there is always a good range of the reservoir’s other wildlife on view making it an evening to remember.
