Join us on our Folkestone and Sandgate experience!
Leaving the iconic Dover Harbour we whisk you along the coast heading west towards Folkestone on an exhilarating boat experience.
We wave goodbye to Dover, we will speed through Shakespeare Bay, named after the bard himself - who reportedly stood at the top of the cliff looking out to France giving him inspiration to write King Lear.
It's a short journey onto Samphire Hoe, the newest piece of mainland Britain. Created from the spoil produced during the construction of the Euro Tunnel.
As we continue along the coast, we will see the impressive defensive structures built along our coastline, such as Martello Towers and Sound Mirrors.
We enter the lee of Folkestone Harbour Arm and continue along the arm enjoying the sights of the people enjoying the promenade and eateries - Don't forget to wave!!
Depending on the state of the tide, we may even see the solid cast-iron figure by the artist Antony Gormley, peeking out from under the old loading bay area of the Arm.
Then we head back out and around the Harbour Arm, this time heading for Sandgate Castle.
The Castle has stood proudly on Sandgate beach since 1540 when it was built at the desire of Henry VII to protect the country from invading forces.
At this point we will be returning to Dover - following the coast back Eastward.
This is all about the experience of boating, and we hope the thrill of the journey has been enjoyable up to now .... but it is over to you!
We invite all our participants to come and have a go!
Depending on weather and sea conditions, our skipper will hand the controls across to you. With expert tuition, you will be taught how to helm the boat. An experience not to forget!
