Whilst a shorter Thames barge trip gives a flavour of sailing these extraordinary ships, our fully catered Thames Estuary Explorer day sail provides the complete experience.
Starting early in the morning from Lower Halstow, sunrise is often a stunning part of the day and you will be treated to a cooked breakfast to fuel you for the adventure ahead.
Once underway, there are a range of options as to where to go – Southend on Sea, Round the Island or an upriver excursion are all possibilities depending on the prevailing conditions.
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.
