Whilst a shorter Thames barge trip gives a flavour of sailing these extraordinary ships, our fully catered day sail provides the complete experience.
Departing from Chatham Marina’s outer waiting pontoon at 830am, you will be treated to a bacon roll on arrival to fuel you for the adventure ahead.
Once underway, the barge will head downriver, leaving the bustle of the Medway Towns behind as the River opens up and we will explore some of the saltmarshes of the lower reaches. Amongst the abundant wildlife, seals are a common sight in these parts of the river.
The skipper will choose somewhere to anchor for lunch, a 2 course freshly prepared meal washed down with a glass of local beer or wine, before the barge raises anchor again and continues on her way.
As the barge begins to make her way back to port, a selection of our homemade cakes will be served to round off the day. The barge will return for around 5pm.
