We went out with John in June on a 4:30pm tied on a gorgeous hot day. We loved every minute and would recommend John taking you over to Scolt Head. John has so much knowledge.

John took my husband, our dog, Pip, and I on a fascinating trip to Scolt Head Island. Although we didn’t see as much wildlife as we hoped, John was a wealth information and entertaining with it. We all thoroughly enjoyed the trip, including Pip.

This has got to be the highlight of our holiday in North Norfolk. A beautiful trip with a highly knowledgeable and friendly boatman/guide. It doesn't get better than this.
