The Rutland Belle

Rutland Water Cruises is a family-run business operating boat trips since 1986, cruising around the reservoir during daylight hours from April to October each year.

Rutland Belle plies from Whitwell on the North Shore and calls in at Normanton on the South Shore. Visitors can enjoy the scenery from the water, amidst the sailors, anglers and waterbirds, whilst listening to commentary highlighting points of interest.

OSPREY CRUISES

One of the most exciting ways of seeing the Ospreys and other wildlife at Rutland Water is to take a guided tour with the members of the Osprey project on board Rutland Belle to stand the best chance of seeing the Osprey fishing.
