The River Deben is one of the most beautiful and scenic spots on the east coast and is rich in wildlife and history. The tidal Deben estuary is a special protection area which lies within the Suffolk coast and heaths area of outstanding natural beauty.

Boat trips run at weekends and most days throughout the summer school holidays and can be pre-booked.

Sorry no dogs.

She has been specially designed to provide convenient and comfortable access for the disabled, with wide hatches and two hydraulic lifting areas of floor to allow up to two disabled persons in small standard wheelchairs.

The weather can’t spoil your trip as the Jahan is an all weather boat. If you have a special occasion to celebrate, or wish to bring a group of people, or are an individual or family who would like to join us, we look forward to your visit.
