Enjoy a tranquil cruise through the High Weald to National Trust’s Bodiam Castle or to Iden Lock, just outside historic Rye. Charter the ex Navy M.V.Dannie Lee boat & captain for your special event or celebration or book tickets on one of our timetabled sunset cruises. Chartered trips can be booked from 1-3 hours & are popular for family & friend groups, corporate events, school trips, birthday & anniversaries, hen & stag parties etc. A trip on a clear evening can be especially stunning, as the return journey is in full view of the setting sun.
