We take bookings on-line, by phone and at the Greta mooring on the South Quay of Whitstable Harbour, so this website may not be completely up to date.
Select from the drop-down list of scheduled sailing dates. Additional sailing dates will be added to this schedule throughout the 2017 sailing season. If your preferred date is not yet shown you can purchase a Gift Voucher and redeem it at a later date. The 2017 Sailing Season is from May up to the end of September or if the weather is suitable for sailing mid October.
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. 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.
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
