The Queenborough to Southend ferry (Trial)

The last passenger ferry from Sheerness to Southend ceased operation some 20 years ago. Jetstream Tours is looking to help re-establish this route enabling foot passengers to travel between Queenborough and Southend. Who knows this could become a new commuting route rejuvenating the Isle of Sheppey as a popular tourist beauty spot or even help build on Southend's most popular tourist attraction with boat rides!

On the 28th August why not spend the day in Southend or on Isle of Sheppey and see it from the other side of the Water. Who knew there was an Adventure island on both sides of the Thames!



This ferry route is being offered as a one off but will provide a feasibility study as to whether a ferry can be reestabished. 

Two sailings will be offered and will be offered as a booked service only with set return times due to capacity and current booking system. Future sailing could offer more flexibility.
