Our Big Ship View / Container Ship trips (proper sea trips!) give you the chance to see huge offshore ships up close and personal with this bespoke and exciting RIB ride off the Norfolk and Suffolk coastline.

We’ll set out to sea from Lowestoft and enjoy a cruise before approaching a ship that is passing through the area, be it a cargo ship, oil tanker, survey vessel or something else…

You’ll be able to marvel at the sites of these huge vessels and the various cargoes they carry as they carry out their voyage. We often have many large ships passing through our waters and they are always an impressive spectacle.

As we can’t guarantee when a ship will be passing through, we are unable to offer this trip all of the time. We keep a close eye on Marine Traffic systems to predict when a large ship is likely to be passing through the area. So you don’t miss out, we can let you know when we will be running this trip next!
