Trip Booking


All public trips on Matilda are currently suspended. We are preparing for the possibility to carry family bubbles on chartered trips. Watch this space.

We hope to start public bookable trips on our 45 min ‘town tour’ again in 2021. Longer charter trips will also be available. Details of the booking process will appear here in due course.
