Chichester Harbour Conservancy – Back on the water!

Solar Heritage, our solar-powered catamaran, is sailing again! After being moored up during lockdown she’s now back on the water at Itchenor and a range of Harbour cruising, bird watching and seal safari tours are planned over the summer months.


Solar Heritage has long allowed visitors to enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Harbour, with minimal disruption to the environment and wildlife. You can slip through the waters and get up close to many of the birds and habitats that make the area so special. Our experts join each sailing and are on hand to answer questions and point out some of the sights.


During lockdown Solar Heritage was renovated at Hayling Yacht Company who carried out some significant improvements including the installation of a new wheelhouse and clear side panels to give a better view for passengers whilst seated. The hulls have also been given a fresh lick of paint and now feature our dynamic new logo.


To book any of the sailings please visit Please note that reduced passenger numbers and other Covid prevention measures will be in place. You can also charter the boat for a private trip for a celebration or group outing by contacting 01243 513275 or
