A Gift Voucher for a Thames Barge Sailing Trip on the 'GRETA' makes an excellent present for a birthday or any other Special Occasion. You can also charter Greta for up to 12 passengers for that special occasion where you require private use of this Thames Sailing Barge. A lovely gift for Anniversaries, Birthdays, or as a unique Wedding present. We have daily sailings trips (subject to weather conditions) from Whitstable Harbour around the Thames Estuary. The next Sailing Season is scheduled to begin in April/May 2019 and will finish around end September or if the weather is good, mid October 2019. These trips can last up to 6 hours so bring food and cold drinks with you. The crew do the sailing while you sit back and relax but if you like, you can, with the permission of the Skipper, help with the sailing.
Greta Gift Vouchers are redeemed by the Holder telephoning the Skipper Steve Norris on 07711 657919 to make a booking. We will then confirm the booking by sending the Voucher Holder a Booking Confirmation by email.
The booking confirmation together with the voucher must be presented to the Skipper of the 'GRETA' on the day of sailing.
Safety Notes for all Passengers
Passengers board and disembark at their own risk via a near vertical ladder attached to the harbour wall. Passengers must ensure that they wear suitable clothing and flat footwear. A safety briefing is given on board prior to sailing.
DON'T FORGET TO BRING A PACKED LUNCH AND COLD DRINKS - WE PROVIDE TEA & COFFEE DURING THE BARGE TRIP. FLAT SHOES ON BOARD PLEASE. WE SUGGEST A HAT ON SUNNY DAYS AND A FLEECE ON OTHER DAYS. YOU CAN EITHER STAY ON DECK OR GO BELOW AND SIT IN THE LOUNGE. BRING A BOOK AND SIT BACK AND RELAX! ENJOY THE PEACE & QUIET!
