Welcome to Medway Boat Charter

There is a tremendous amount of heritage to be discovered on our River. Ancient castles and forts are best seen from the river, as well as the future world heritage site at Chatham Historic Dockyard.

The river is, without doubt, the greatest leisure facility available to the residents of Medway – take a more in depth look at some of the vessels below. Why not  give the skippers a ring – they’ll be happy to discuss available trips or any event you may have in mind – anniversary or birthday trips, stag parties or more sensitive occasions such as the scattering of ashes.


For those who prefer nature’s creations to man’s, once clear of the Napoleonic forts at Hoo, a fantastic and diverse landscape is revealed – porpoises, seals and rare birds can often be seen amongst the saltmarsh.

With the Thames Estuary on our doorstep, a fantastic fishing ground is only 30 minutes away from the Towns by boat – no need to disappear off to Dover or other distant fishing ports! Also, in the X-Pilot, we have the only vessel that is permitted to land on the famous, alien looking, Red Sand Towers.

This famous estuary is also the home of the Thames sailing barge and there are two available to charter from our River, with more being restored along her banks.
