Tonbridge River Trips Home Page



Launched in April 2015. A new, green, electric powered boat is available for a sedate river cruise on the River Medway from Tonbridge in Kent. The end of April saw the return of rowing boats for hire. Both the river trips and the rowing boats will be available from the Big Bridge during out operational days (see below)

The electric launch "Enid May" will run trips in the Tonbridge area and is the ideal platform for photographing the area and the wildlife. The boat will seat up to 12 passengers comfortably and is safe for kids. Why not enjoy a relaxing 50 minute river trip or book for a private "voyage" either way you get close to nature and can glean some of the areas history from the skipper before finally returning to your starting point by the castle.

The rowing boats are large enough for 4 to 5 adults, stable and easy to row, we advise you go anti clockwise around the island, most people can do it in about an hour.
