Ferry Service to Orford Beach from Orford Quay

Orford Island is a long shingle beach and has some of the deepest beach lines on the East Coast of England.

Cod fishing from the beach here can be the most consistent in the UK, maybe not one of the most renowned because of its remote location.

A well kept secret, there are two landing areas, one being the Crouch which is one mile down river and a 500 yard walk to the beach and is closer to the Ness Point. The second is the Narrows which is two miles down river and a 150 yard walk to the beach.

The best periods to fish most certainly are the winter months from mid-September up to the end of December and then from March through to mid-June. The fishing drops during January, February, July and August.

All rubbish to be cleared away and brought back on the ferry.

Times of ferry normally early morning and back late afternoon. You can either fish day or night.

CROUCH £8.00
