A Christmas Carol

Sail with Santa

This year, jump aboard the Jacob Marley for a mystical voyage to the North Pole. This family-friendly, fun-filled experience to visit Santa will leave your little ones really looking forward to Christmas.

The experience starts as you board at Rochester Pier to sail down river towards the "North Pole". Festive music and colouring will keep the kids entertained while you cruise passed the sights of Rochester and Chatham Historic Dockyard.

Adults sit back and relax and enjoy a Mulled wine and a Mince Pie on us. Children receive a Mince pie and a juice box.

Upon arrival at the North pole, (Chatham Marina) the man himself will board the boat and sail with the vessel for about 20 minutes. Each child will personally receive a gift from Santa , before he must leave to carry on with his Christmas preparations. 

Once Santa has seen all the children he will return to the North Pole and allow the boat to make its journey back to Rochester.


The tour lasts for 90 minutes and departs at 1030 and 1230 Saturdays  and Sundays (December Only)
