River tour from Chatham

Take a Trip from Sun Pier to the Eerie World War 2 Maunsel forts , called the Red sand Towers.

These Historic monuments stand in the estuary some 9 miles from Southend and 5 Miles from Whitstable.

It will take approximately an 2.5 hours hour to reach the Towers and will pass by the numerous Island forts that have guarded the Medway Estuary since the 1860’s. 

You will get chance to take plenty of photos in and around the towers as our vessel is small enough to pass between and under the structures. (We do not allow anyone to board the structures).

If you’re an avid photographer, grab your long lenses to see if you can snap photos of the Peregrine Falcons.

On the return journey we will pass round the SS. Richard Montgomery (outside the exclusion zone) before returning back up the Medway to Rochester.

A full commentary is available on the vessel along with a Bar and Toilets

Meet point: Sun Pier, Medway Street, Chatham
