Where we go on our Whitstable boat tours
After a short safety brief by our professional skipper, we start our trip on board from Whitstable Harbour. After a fantastic trip into the North Sea or the Thames estuary, we head northeast, six miles out, and we visit the Guy Maunsell towers, or red sands sea forts, army forts constructed on the red sands, from the second world war. We discuss their colourful history and how the Whitstable sea forts became pirate radio stations. Further out in the Thames estuary are the Kentish Flats wind farm. To the North are the shimmering sands of Maunsell sea forts, another pirate radio station where City Radio was based. Guy Maunsell also constructed these sea forts. Further west, on a different trip, you will find the seals on Horse Sands. Please read whitstable boat trips reviews.
You will be taken out on our 12m Rib boat, which has two powerful 300 Suzuki eight-cylinder 4.2l engines. The boat will cruise to the Maunsell ( Whitstable) sea forts, Kentish flats, wind farms or seals. The boat trips are smooth as the hull is a deep V and will slice nicely through the Thames chop. Clients who suffer from seasickness will not feel unwell on our boat as they are out in the fresh air and can easily see the horizon at all times.
If the weather does blow up and the skipper feels it unsafe to go to the towers. A sailing might need to be cancelled as occasionally bookings need to be cancelled. You will get a full refund.
