Rutland Belle Osprey Cruises. One of the most exciting ways of seeing Ospreys at Rutland Water is to take a guided trip with members of the project team aboard the Rutland Belle. The idea is simple; The Rutland Belle will sail to the parts of the reservoir where you stand the best chance of seeing fishing Ospreys and, with a bit of luck, are rewarded with spectacular views. You'll be able to enjoy breathtaking views of the birds diving for fish very close to the boat and even on those rare occasions when Ospreys prove elusive, there is always a good range of the reservoir’s other wildlife on view.

Tickets are available from 23rd May 3.45pm-6.45pm. £20 per adult, £12 for under 16s. In addition to your cruise ticket you are also entitled to a 20% discount on entrance to the Lyndon and Egleton nature reserves (normal price £5.65 per adult). You can do this on the day of the cruise, or the day after. Manton Bay is the location of the nest on our live webcam on and is situated on the Lyndon nature reserve.
