Essex Outdoors Bradwell: Family Powerboating Experience Days
Take to the water on a powerboat to experience a day on the River Blackwater with your family.
Join Essex Outdoors: Bradwell for an exhilarating powerboating experience on a Rigid Inflatable Boat (RIB).
All RIB trips are skippered by a highly experienced instructor. The river trips are ideal for groups of up to seven people – at least one of whom must be an adult – including children from ages seven-years-old and over.
Once kitted up with waterproofs (if required) and a lifejacket you'll head into the Blackwater Estuary on your chosen vessel. You'll have the opportunity to helm, navigate and learn the ropes or alternatively sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.
At lunchtime you'll head into Mersea or Maldon (please check possible lunchtime destinations when booking) where you can disembark if you have a restaurant booking or moor up and enjoy your picnic.
You are in safe hands
A friendly, experienced and qualified instructor will be present onboard to skipper throughout the day ensuring you are in safe hands at all times.
So what are you waiting for? Secure your places and set sail.
