Maunsell Forts tours

Welcome to Whitstable boat tours ( Boat trips Ltd). We specialise in taking groups of up to 12 people out to the Maunsell Forts on the Red Sand off Whitstable. From Whitstable harbour, it’s a 15-minute journey out to the forts, where you’ll be given a brief talk on the fortifications and their history. These structures look like the striding machines from the classic novel war of the worlds; they are seven miles from the Kent coast and 7 miles from the Essex coast. If you were on a World War 2 plane, you would be only 12 minutes from Central London.

Costs from £40 non peak times.

Kentish Flats wind farms

The Maunsell forts is a short boat trip over to the Kentish Flats wind farms. Looking back at the Red Sand forts is like looking through time; you will be at the cutting edge of technology looking back at what was the pinnacle of innovation 75 years ago. We quietly cruise around these 75m giants, and we will blow you away with what these fantastic machines generate from a free power source. This trip is part of the Maunsell forts trip as it is nearly on the way or the way back.


Private charter

If you can not find the time and date that works for you, why not treat family and friends to a trip? We can go to the seals, wind farms or Maunsell forts.
To take twelve people out to the Maunsell forts or the Seals will cost £450; this takes about an hour. If you would like to see the Maunsell forts and see the seals and take a trip around Hernebay pier, it is £650, which takes about 2 hours. All our trips are weather dependent, so why not get away from the hustle and bustle of the town and come and join us for a beautiful adventure.

Seal Safari off the Horse sands Whitstable. Book Here !

Seal Trips. Our advanced skippers will navigate the tide and the waves to take a journey out along the Horse sands between the isle of Sheppey and Faversham to see a large seal colony. These fascinating creatures have become more prominent as the wind farms have become more extensive. The fish life has increased under the legs of the wind farms and has created an ideal place for fish to breed in ever-increasing numbers of seals. The cost of a seat to see the seals from £30 a seat.

Tankerton Slopes

This trip is ideal if you want a short trip with your family and friends to experience the boat; we head out of Whitstable, turn east and travel along the coast off Tankerton slopes. It is a short 20-minute trip there and back and an enjoyable distraction from the normality of Whitstable. The cost of this trip is £20 a seat, as we need a minimum of 6 people to cover expenses; we can take up to 12 people at £20 a seat. Please email me as this trip we only run by appointment.

You will be taken out on our 12m Rib with two powerful 300 Suzuki eight-cylinder 4.2l engines; the boat will cruise out to the Maunsell forts or out to the seals, the ride is pretty smooth as the Hull is a deep V and slices nicely through the Thames chop. Sometimes the wind does blow from the North and it can get lumpy and we may need to cancel a trip if it is not safe to run, most of the time the wind is from the south west so the sea conditions are often smooth, making for a fun trip.
