Grove Ferry River Trips Home Page

Launched in March 2010. A green 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 Pub and Inn - our mooring location.

2021 Season

The plan for 2021 is to restart river trips whilst following government guidance for the prevention of Covid-19 spread
This means initially limiting the number of passangers and not allowing mixed groups
All trips must be pre booked and pre paid.
