Welcome aboard the Solar Heritage, our solar powered catamaran. Take a trip through this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with an experienced guide to help you learn about the environment of Chichester Harbour. 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 are available throughout the year or why not bring your own group for a private cruise. For more information contact: 01243 513275 or activities@conservancy.co.uk
