Launched in April 2018, Wetwheels South East became the fourth regional operator for the national disability power boating charity Wetwheels Foundation. It is community interest company number 10253398.

    Wetwheels South East has her home in the Port of Dover, so is perfectly positioned to operate across the region, from Eastbourne to Central London including the Medway and Maidstone.

    The Wetwheels experience is designed to enable every disabled person the chance to experience the excitement of power boating. Wetwheels boats are truly unique by being fully accessible - not just giving you the chance to be a passenger, but also to take the helm as the skipper - everybody gets the chance to drive!

    We depend on the goodwill of our wonderfully experienced volunteers and generous donors to bring Wetwheels to you. If you would like to be part of a Wetwheels experience, it doesn't matter if you're young or old; Just get in touch with us to arrange your visit or book via our booking system to see and book the trips we offer.
