Launched in March 2010. A new, greener, electric powered boat is available for a sedate river cruise along the River Stour in Kent. You will be able to pass through scenic areas of outstanding beauty unreachable by foot or car and get close to local wildlife. The quiet, electric boat will aid the sighting of many wild birds and animals, permitting close encounters.

The "Ellen Mary" 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 one hour 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 The Grove Pantry Pub and Inn - our mooring location.
