Event Details


Are you an experienced amateur wildlife photographer who would jump at the chance to photograph Exe Estuary wildlife from the vantage point of a stationary boat?

We are running a special cruise to allow for those 'once in a lifetime' shots. Your RSPB on-board wildlife guide, Jo King, will point out species such as black-tailed godwits, dunlins, golden plovers – and of course – avocets; liaising with the skipper to stop the boat for fantastic photo opportunities. This is a great opportunity to get up close with some stunning wildlife!


Booking essential. The cruise will last for 1.5 hours
