Located next to The Grove Ferry Pub, at the bridge end of the decking in front of the function room, we can offer river trips before, between or after visits to the Inn and the local sights, staying overnight, relax with a quiet pleasant river trip.
These tides are based on Dover + 3h15, all times are local.
These are calculated times and should not be used for navigation, only as an indication.
BEWARE if the Stonar Cut is open, tides turn an hour earlier.
Tide Ht is height of high tide Dover - not the range.

This access statement is not a personal statement as to our suitability for those with access needs, but aims to describe the facilities and services that we offer all our guests/visitors.
The boat is boarded via a non-slip metal plate ramp which is adjusted to the height of tide, from the ramp there are 3 steps down into the boat.
If you have any queries or require any assistance please contact us.
The boat can be found by either entering the Inn front door (steps) and exiting the rear on to the decking,or via the Inn garden and on to the decking (ramp), or from the car park going to the left side of the Inn and through the gate to the rear of the Inn, this has no steps buts some paving stones that are a little uneven.
Staff will aid disabled customers where possible.
Grove Ferry River Trips and The Grove Ferry Inn are separate businesses but the Inn allows our visitors free use of its facilities which include: free car parking, toilet facilities including disabled and refreshments.
Once on the tour a commentary is given by the skipper. It is recommended that passengers with hearing difficulties sit closer to the guide. The main attraction is the scenery, so deaf passengers will still enjoy the tour.
All dogs are welcome.
