For many years paddle steamers such as the “Medway Queen” have offered trips across the Thames Estuary to the world’s longest pier at Southend. Join us on this fantastic day out to once again have fish and chips on the beach, visit Adventure Island or ride the train to the end of the pier. Time ashore will vary depending on tides but we aim to give you about 4-5 hours of free time.

Note: Southend Pier is accessible via a steep ramp. This is not suitable for wheelchairs or for the mobility impaired.

Adults £25, Child £20, Family £70, Under 3's Free

Rochester to Redsand Towers (via Southend Pier)

From 9th April onwards

Red Sand Towers.jpg

Take a Trip from Rochester Pier to the Eerie World War 2 Maunsel forts , called the Red sand Towers (Via Southend Pier)

These Historic monuments stand in the estuary some 9 miles from Southend and 5 Miles from Whitstable. It will take approximately an Three hours hour to reach the Towers and will pass by the Mulbury Harbour (Pheonix unit) and Shoebury boom before crossing the Shipping channel towards the Isle of Sheppey. 

You will get chance to take plenty of photos in and around the towers as our vessel is small enough to pass between and under the structures. (We do not allow anyone to board the structures).


On the return journey we will pass round the SS. Richard Montgomery before returning back to Southend PIer where we will lay alongside for approximately 1 hour before returning back to Rochester.  

This tour combines a Southend Day trip and a Red sand Towers tour into one day and saves you 20% when buying both tours together.
