Self Drive Motor Boats

Available to rent from Tuckton Tea Gardens, Wick Ferry (outside the captains club hotel) and Christchurch Quay.

They are rented on an hour or half an hour basis as they are only allowed on the river Stour, with exit to the harbour and sea strictly forbidden. Instruction and guidance on your route will be given at the time of hire.

Each boat takes up to 6 passengers and these smaller boats give access to some areas which the ferries do not see.

"One of my favourite places to go and relax ... with a beautiful view out the caff window of the river and boats .... loads of other stuff to do down there in summer too"
