When making passages with the barge, you have to work the tides and this often means an early start or late finish.

So often, at these special times of day when the sun is just below the horizon, the light is incredible, the sailing peaceful and the experience a little bit magical, and yet it is normally just the skipper and mate aboard.

Now, we invite you to join us to experience this special part of the day.

We set sail as the sun begins to sink low and return once it has dipped below the horizon as the night draws in.

Please read the General Information page before booking.
