Grove Ferry River Trips Wildlife Experiences 2022

If it is wildlife you are interested in seeing it is possible to spot some on the day time cruises but for a better chance we recommend you book to join one of our evening wildlife experiences, leaving an hour before sunset and lasting about 2 hours these trips have the potential to spot kingfishers, woodpeckers, marsh harriers, owls and beavers to name a few, of course this is "wild" life so nothing can be guaranteed but if nothing else it is a wonderful trip in the Kent countryside with a sunset is thrown in.

Leaving about an hour before sunset we cruise up the Stour guided by an ecologist, watchful for kingfishers and other wildlife along the banks, inspecting beaver activity and a beaver lodge along the way, before stopping for sunset with a hot drink, we then start the return journey and hopefully see a beaver or two swimming in the river as the light fades.
