Our Trips

Private Charters

We offer the opportunity for guests to charter Wingate for a private tour around the Harbour. This is quite popular for those wishing to celebrate a special occasion whilst out on the water. We often cater to work parties, birthday celebrations, wedding parties and hen/stag dos.

You can chose whether to have to the boat to yourselves or just part of it. Our private charter rate varies depending on numbers and the time in the season. Please get in touch with us if you have any questions or want to arrange a private charter.

Public trips

We run public boat trips April – October throughout the year. These trips run up to 4 times a day during high season, daily during Spring and Autumn, and weekends during April and October. Times for these trips are advertised on our talking timetable (01243 670504) or can be viewed on our Timetable page. Out of season, trips may be cancelled because of the weather however, due to the nature of Chichester Harbour, there is always somewhere to go with sheltered waters, so it isn’t often we have cancelations.
