Covid-19 – Impact & Response
The Norfolk Wherry Trust is, like all responsible organisations, following government advice about the Covid-19 virus. The safety and health of charter and day cruise passengers and the NWT volunteers and visitors is of paramount importance. Changes have had to be made to the operational schedule. All bookings for Albion are cancelled until 1st July 2020 and day cruises and open days until 15th July 2020. Bookings are still being taken for all dates after 1st July 2020 until the end of the season. More details can be found here.

Down below, in the hold, we carry water in tanks, there is a loo, also a gas cooker, utensils, cutlery and crockery for a party of 12, with a large refectory table and benches. We do not carry glassware. For overnight charter the hold is fitted out with 12 bunks. The crew sleep separately in a cuddy.
All passengers are required to wear modern, comfortable, adjustable and self inflating life jackets, whilst on deck – these are supplied. Passengers are strongly advised to wear ‘non slip’ sole shoes and to bring clothing suitable for being out in the elements all day. We sail in all weathers and on the very rare occasions when the skipper decides that the day is too foul for any fun to be had, we will reschedule your day to mutual satisfaction.
If you’re unable to get enough people together to organise a charter, you might be interested in our Day Cruises. These are scheduled at the start of the season and are open to both members and non-members alike (naturally there is a discount for members !). You may book as individuals or a small group to join other folk who are doing likewise. Full details of this season’s Day Cruises are held on our Events webpage, click here for details.
