About

Come out for a trip out on Lapwing our 12 seater narrowboat.  She is designed to be used as a relaxing space to enjoy the surroundings whilst also having the privacy of the hold feeling like your private space to observe river life.  On Sunny days she will be open and on less favourable days we can use the boats canopy to keep you comfortable and dry.

As an introductory offer this summer we are offering a limited number of trips where individuals or small groups can join in these scheduled trips to create a 12.  Children are welcome but we ask for an adult to be with them at all times.

Sign up for a trip now and join our crew for one of our relaxing trips along the non tidal Medway at Maidstone.
