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, and after a short trip into the North Sea or the Thames estuary, we head north east, six miles out, and we visit the Guy Maunsell towers, or sea forts, army forts constructed on the red sands, from the second world war. We talk about their colourful history and how the Whitstable sea forts became pirate radio stations. Futher out in the Thames estuary are the Kentish flats wind farm, to the North there are the shimmering sands maunsell sea forts, another pirate radio station, where City radio was based. These sea forts were also constructed by Guy Maunsell. Further west on a different trip you will find the seals on Horse sands.

Our Boat trips

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 with children 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.
