About the bat safaris

Grab this chance to see our fantastic local bat population as they emerge from hibernation in May and follow their activities until their return to a snug hideout for winter.

The tours are led by knowledgeable Wildlife Trust Bat Experts and they'll make sure you get the most from your experience. The tours are chauffeured and include the use of specialist electronic bat detectors which convert the bats' sonar signals into audible frequencies.

Your guide will outline the characteristics and habitats of bats likely to be encountered on your trip and teach you how to use the detectors. You'll identify exactly which species of bat are flying close to your punt and find out about our amazing local species.

Scudamore's contributes 50% of ticket proceeds to the Wildlife Trust! Since we started running the tours we've given more than £50,000.

Have a question?

How long is the tour?

Our bat safaris are on average 90 minutes long. Your tour will finish at the same place you started from.

Where do I need to go for my booking?

The bat safaris depart from our Boatyard Punt Station located at Granta Place, Mill Lane, Cambridge CB2 1RS

Can I move or reschedule my ticket?

Yes, just follow the link in your email booking confirmation. You can easily rearrange your trip without paying an exchange fee up to 1 hour before departure. You’ll only pay the difference in ticket price, where applicable.

What if the weather changes on the day?

All of our tours run as normal unless the river conditions are dangerous and we have to stop operating. As standard, we provide umbrellas and blankets on our boats.

How many people can each boat hold?

Our punts hold up to 12 passengers split into 4 socially distanced, distinct rows.

Why are seats sold in rows of 3?

We've opted to keep our socially-distanced seating on our shared tours to minimise disruption to people's bookings when and if restrictions change or are imposed again. Further, we acknowledge that not all members of the public want to share seating in very close proximity to other people.

Any other questions?

If you have any other queries or special requests please do get in touch.
