Boarding Georgina from her mooring near Jesus Lock you will meander downstream past Jesus Green, then gently under Victoria Bridge and on past the University/ City rowing clubs on Midsummer Common. Continuing downstream we will head out past Riverside and into the village of Chesterton and Stourbridge Common.
Further cruises will go on towards the beautiful village of Fen Ditton and then on to Baits bite lock near the village of Milton.
Should your cruise be going through Baits Bite lock you will head out into the fens on towards Horningsea and Waterbeach.
Ely is only 30 minutes from Cambridge by road, the river trip takes just over 4.5 hours one way, going through 2 locks on the way. Georgina is licensed to operate with passengers as far as the river is non-tidal, which is about 3 hours beyond Ely at Denver Sluice (near Downham Market in Norfolk.) The tidal river below Denver Sluice runs out to the North Sea at King’s Lynn. (There is a new non-tidal channel from Denver to King’s Lynn, on which Georgina is allowed to carry passengers. This navigation was only opened in April 2001. Currently this navigation finishes at Wiggenhall St Germans & doesn’t go all the way into King’s Lynn.)
The most popular private charter of Georgina is a 4-hour round trip starting & finishing in Cambridge. The trip is about halfway to Ely and back, with the turning point between the Horningsea and Bottisham Lock (near Waterbeach).
