Jetstream Tours is the leading operator for sightseeing tours on the River Medway. From River Cruisers to adrenaline fuelled Jetboats, we have something for everyone. Discover hidden castles, forts, U-Boats and wrecks. What better way to see Medway's sights than from the river? All our tours are supplied with an informative commentary which will let you know all about the rivers history. Depart from either Rochester Pier on our RiverCruiser or from Sun Pier on our Jet boat.

Our most popular tour the "MedwayRaid" is a 90 minute experience tour aboard our 530hp Jetboat "Twist". But if it's a more sedate cruise your after, jump aboard our RiverCruiser in Rochester and enjoy a glass of wine while you cruise to Upnor and back.

Joined the Jacob Marley for the New Years Eve trip to London to see the NYE Fireworks - great welcome aboard, great bar, food and experience and an awesome view of the festivities just off Westminster Bridge - a perfect way to see in the New Year

Having arrived at the boat, we were greeted by the Skipper and crew. We given a hot drink and a mince pie, and was invited to have Mulled wine when ready. It was a very foggy day on the river today, but this did not spoil the enthusiasm at all, Santa and his Elf came aboard at Chatham and were... More

this is a really good attraction - just at the end of the main road and under the overhang of the castle, is the pier, and at the end of the pier is the Jetstream boat - just the thing on a grey December day. We were welcomed aboard, had mulled wine and mince pies and then set off for... More

Took the 10.30 hour trip down the Medway. Really interesting trip with lots to see and so much history to be told. The guys running the boat were very approachable and knowledgeable. Plenty of wildlife to see including Gulls, Cormorants and Heron. Even saw a seal! Really worth doing to get a great perspective of the area.

We went on the Medway Raid and had a great time. The tour portion was interesting and the high-speed part was very exciting and very wet! I would recommend bringing a hat to cover your ears as it gets windy too.

I booked the 90 minute Raid tour for my dad's birthday, after being cancelled twice due to bad weather (no ones fault and would rather be safe) we set sail at 2pm. Was really impressed with the informative audio and thought the music was really well thought out and fitting. Matt the young captain was brilliant and we felt very... More

I took my 4 year old daughter on her first boat ride. It was a 1 hour river medway cruise. She loved it the staff was friendly and professional. The audio commentary about the area was brilliant and added a bit of entertainment to the ride. We got on at Rochester Pier and went past St Marys Island. The price... More

Next time you are in Rochester try the lovely 1hour cruise of the Medway. This is a very peaceful enjoyable cruise down the River Medway, with a commentary about the history of the area and the sights to see. This must be the only place to see both a Russian and Royal Navy Submarine with 1 mile of each other.... More

Took my wife out on the Raid tour and we both had a great time. We.ve both lived in the area for a good part of our lives, so we knew most of the history part of the tour, but it was still interesting, filling in the gaps in our knowledge. The fast bit out in the estuary was great.... More
