Solar Heritage

Boat Trip

Welcome aboard the Solar Heritage, a solar powered catamaran. Take a trip through Chichester Harbour Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with an experienced guide to help you learn about this unique area.

On-board the engines are virtually silent as you glide along with plenty of time to admire the view and get up close to many of the birds and habitats that make this place so special.

Trips from Emsworth are one hour in duration, those from Itchenor are an hour-and-a-half.

Prices for specialist trips vary.
