Discovery Cruise

Set sail across Trentham’s iconic, Capability Brown Lake and discover the stunning landscape, myriad of wildlife and its enthralling history aboard our all-electric catamaran, Miss Elizabeth. Now refreshed for the 2024 season, The Discovery Cruise is a swashbuckling yet informative adventure – suitable for all ages!

Come and see the one of the largest heron and cormorant nesting and roosting sites, all from the water, and spot signs of the Trentham’s resident beavers all while learning about the landscape history of this incredible place. This cruise is a spectacular way to experience impressive nature with your on-board expert Wildlife Ranger well equipped to help you understand our conservation commitments and answer your questions.
