Join one of our vintage barges at Maldon Quay for a two hour cruise to enjoy the quiet beauty of the River Blackwater.
Leaving the Quay, the barge heads down river past the Victorian Promenade Park; past the statue of Brithnoth guarding Maldon against marauding Vikings; Northea Island which is a bird reserve owned by the National Trust; Heybridge Basin, the entrance to the Chelmer & Blackwater Canal; Mill Beach with it’s colourful beach huts on legs and finally towards the privately owned Osea Island, now a luxury weekend retreat and wedding venue.
NOTE: There will be other guests onboard who have booked tickets including a table below decks which is now full. These tickets are for deck space only, you can only go below decks to use the toilets, hence these last tickets are at a reduced price. Feel free to bring a picnic.
Boarding details are sent by e-mail 4 weeks before a trip or when booking (check your junk folder). Be ready to board the barge 1/2 hour before sailing. Search for car parks near Maldon CM9 5HN, Ipswich IP4 1FH, Brightlingsea CO7 ODY, Harwich CO12 3HH
