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. Whitstable is a small town just 7 miles from Canterbury on the North Kent Coast famous for Oysters and lots of unique small shops. Sailing depends on weather and wind conditions and is at the Skipper's discretion, therefore, some or even all 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.
The sailing season is usually from Spring (April/May) till late Summer (Sep/mid Oct)
Our most popular trip is a visit to the World War II Army Forts, we regularly sail through the Kentish Flats Wind Farm, out to the Red Sands WWII Army Forts or towards Herne Bay Pier, Reculver Tower and back to Whitstable Harbour.
If the wind is too strong to head out to the forts we take a more sheltered and relaxing sail up the River Swale and see the wreck of the USS Montgomery off the Isle of Sheppey. We often watch the seals and seal pups sunning themselves, or lazily playing in the shallow water.
UPDATE: 10 JUNE 2018 - THE GORRELL TANK LONG STAY CAR PARK OPPOSITE WHITSTABLE HARBOUR IS NOW OPEN.
( We moor next to the Harbour Garden Café on the South Quay, Whitstable Harbour CT5 1AB)
