GIFT VOUCHERS

A Gift Voucher for a trip on board the historic Thames Sailing Barge '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 trips (subject to weather conditions) from Whitstable Harbour around the Thames Estuary. The sailing season usually begins in April/May and finishes around the end of September or if the weather is good, mid October. These trips can last up to 6 hours so bring food and cold drinks with you. We provide Tea & Coffee! 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.

Gift Vouchers for the 2020 Sailing Season

During the sailing season Greta is moored on the South Quay, Whitstable Harbour, Kent CT5 1AB. Whitstable is on the North Kent Coast about 7 miles (11.5 km) from Canterbury.

The day can be as relaxing or active as you like, either sit back and enjoy the peace and quiet whilst enjoying the view of the Kent Coast, or get involved with the sailing, hoisting the sails, winding the leeboards or taking the helm. The day is yours to enjoy. Owner/Skipper Steve Norris and crew are there to ensure you have a safe, relaxed experience on this lovely historic (1892) Thames Sailing Barge.

The trip will depart from the South Quay in Whitstable Harbour and will be around part of the Thames Estuary. The actual route will depend on weather conditions and will be decided on the day by the Greta Skipper Steve Norris. 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. Another trip may be towards Herne Bay Pier, Reculver Tower and back to Whitstable Harbour. If the wind is too strong to head out to the forts we may take a more sheltered and relaxing sail up the Swale towards King's Ferry Bridge. We often watch the seals and seal pups sunning themselves, or lazily playing in the shallow water.

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.

Important - In case of late cancellation by us due to weather conditions or another reason please confirm your trip with the Greta Skipper Steve Norris on 07711 657919 the evening prior to your sailing date. If we confirm your trip then please arrive 15-30 minutes before the departure time.
