Offering exciting opportunities to glide along the River Medway and the famous River Thames, Jetstream Tours are proud to announce the largest passenger vessel to ever cruise the Thames Estuary! With a range of guided tours, boat trips and sightseeing cruises, there's something for everyone when you cruise with Jetstream Tours.

There's so many things to do with Jetstream Tours 

Created by individuals who have a passion for boating and experience working on rivers since 2001, Jetstream Tours began as a small tour company with just one vessel, before climbing the ranks and becoming one of Kent's best tour operators with a range of vessels, guides, excursions and more!

  • Red Sand Towers: Located within the Thames Estuary, take a cruise out to see the forts designed for the army in World War 2. Over 80 years old and decaying away, you'll learn the history and facts behind these iconic towers as you take in the sights on your cruise. 
  • Maunsell Forts: Cruise out to visit the famous Redsand Towers, passing numerous Island forts that have guarded the Medway Estuary since the 1860's!
  • Queenborough to Southend: Enjoy an all-day adventure as you set sail from Queenborough to the Isle of Sheppey, where you'll enjoy fish and chips, visit Adventure Island and create your own schedule with 6 hours of free time ashore.
  • Around the Island: Depart Queensborough before sailing the Swale, pass under bridges and past nature reserves before heading out to sea for a short distance, taking in the local history, sights and culture as you cruise.
  • Fish and Chips Cruise: Enjoy a three-hour evening cruise along the Medway with a local, prominent and expert guide as you enjoy the quintessential British dinner onboard.

"Brilliant day out to Southend with the family and all thanks to Jetstream Tours sailing us there safely. Booked online without any hassle and on the day we met a friendly representative at the pier to escort us to the boat. The boat itself is large and has outside seating. Bar is affordable and plenty to choose from. Toilets on board. You also get the train pier included with the ticket which is a nice touch. Highly recommend and will be booking again in the coming months." - TripAdvisor
