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.

Programmes of guided events to include a 1 ½ hour cruise aboard Rutland Belle, are arranged by the Leicestershire & Rutland Wildlife Trust, to take place on selected dates between May and August.

Dates for cruises are listed below with their sailing times from Whitwell Harbour (LE15 8BL)
