Charter Our Historic Navy Boats

When our boats are not ferrying passengers to the sites in the Park they are available for charter. Each of the two boats holds approximately 30 – 35 people depending on the activity planned. Your charter includes a captain, crew and fuel. You may bring beverages and snacks, but please no glass. Bicycles and well-behaved dogs accommodated, space permitting. .

Schedule permitting, the Park may be able to provide a docent for a fee should your group like to hear about some of the rich history on the Thames. Charters may be requested daytime or evening 7 days a week. We will do out best to get your group on board. The boats do not have bathrooms.


One-Hour Charter $395

90-Minute Charter $495

Two-Hour Charter $660
