GRETA WILL BE IN DRY DOCK FOR THE WINTER UNDER GOING MAINTENANCE.  GIFT VOUCHERS WILL BE VALID FOR THE 2017 SAILING SEASON FROM MAY TILL MID OCTOBER.

ORDER A GIFT VOUCHER NOW THAT CAN BE REDEEMED DURING THE MAY-OCT 2017 SAILING SEASON.

Do you fancy a relaxing day on board the historic (1892) Thames Sailing Barge. Subject to weather conditions we sail or motor around the Thames Estuary from Whitstable Harbour (just 7 miles from Canterbury) Whitstable is a small town on the North Kent Coast famous for Oysters and lots of unique small shops. We only take up to 12 passengers so either book on line now from the list of sailing dates (we update these during the sailing season) or purchase a Greta Gift Voucher which can then be redeemed at a later date. The Owner Skipper of Greta is Steve Norris. You can contact him on 07711 657919 but may have to leave a message if he is out sailing. 

Sailing depends on weather and wind conditions and is at the Skipper's discretion, therefore, some or even all of the boat trip may be under the power of a diesel engine.   As we may need to cancel your trip due to unsuitable weather conditions, please add a mobile phone no. to your booking so we can contact you. In this event we will re-schedule your sailing date.

FOR SAILING TRIPS WITHIN THE NEXT 48 HOURS please ring Greta's Skipper Steve Norris on 07711 657919 to check availability before booking online. We also take bookings at the quayside and by telephone, so the online booking facility might not have been updated to include those bookings.

Please arrive 15-30 minutes before the departure time

( We moor next to the Harbour Garden Café on the South Quay, Whitstable Harbour CT5 1AB)

 Maximum of 12 passengers on ALL trips with a maximum of 8 passengers if Greta is taking part in a Thames Barge Match.
