Boat trips

As we continue to support the national effort to keep people safe and continue to follow Government guidance, we are, unfortunately, not able to run our boat trips. We are currently investigating ways to make our trip boat Queen Boadicea II COVID safe, and she is also undergoing a major re-fit. It’s a challenging time for our own Dunkirk Little Ship but we really hope to get her back in safe service as soon as possible.

Did you know that our tour boat, Queen Boadicea II, was one of the 'Little Ships’ of Dunkirk and in May 1940 helped evacuate troops from the beaches of Dunkirk.
