Trips to the WWII Redsand Towers 2017

X-Pilot Official Project Redsand Supply Vessel

New dates added to our sailing page – click here

The Redsand Tower Trips, are non-boarding or, as we describe them, viewing trips, but they are still the best way to see and photograph the towers because X-Pilot is the official Project Redsand supply vessel and we can get closer than any other vessel! On the standard trips you can expect to spend one hour sailing between, through and around the towers offering some exceptional opportunities for photography. Please note that return times, especially on trips from Rochester and the Grand Forts Tours, are approximate.

The trips from Rochester Pier (ME1 1SW) sail from opposite Rochester Castle. The Redsand Towers Trips from Rochester sail past Chatham Historic Dockyard, between the Napoleonic Forts, out into the Thames Estuary and on to the Redsand Towers and last approximately 6 hours.

The Redsand Tower Trips from Queenborough sail from the All Tide Landing (ME11 5AA) and last approximately 4 hours.

Both departure points are in the county of Kent in the Southeast of England.

The Grand Forts Tour is a superb eight plus hour adventure and has to sail from Queenborough All Tide Landing (ME11 5AA) because otherwise it would be a ten or eleven hour trip! We sail to the wreck of the SS Richard Montgomery, the Grain Fort, the Knock John Fort, the Shivering Sands Towers and the Redsand Towers.
