Your adventure begins as you depart the pier and travel to Strangford Lough to the embarkation point.

Arriving on the shores of Strangford Lough, you will begin to appreciate the beauty of the National Trust property of Castle Ward. Following a safety briefing with your skipper you will begin a stunning sightseeing boat trip where you can view the beautiful stately home from the water, get up close to the seals and experience ‘Seagen’, the world’s first electricity generating tidal turbine.

Coming ashore following your exhilarating experience, enjoy a relaxing tea or coffee with scones.

Refreshed, rejoin your motor coach and return to your Crystal ship.
