Canterbury punting company shared tours

Skip the queues!

Just arriving without purchasing a ticket will lead to a delay in departure. During busy periods we expect two-four hour delays when it's slow the wait time is generally up to one hour as we must give a chance for other passangers to make the same scheduled tour.

We now offer a limited number of advanced shared tour tickets. These give you scheduled departure time. These are only available directly from our website.There is a minimum of two adults per booking to make sure we have a feasable tour size. Scroll down to book.

Book Your tickets online and save £2 on every adult who goes punting! .  Check the early bird discount on certain tour times! It gives you even more money off.

COVID 19 and shared tours?

You are probably wondering how it is safe to take a shared tour on such a small boat?, well we have introduced screens and reduced the number of groups per row of seats to one. This has the added bonus of creating privacy and increasing personal space. ..

About the shared tour

The shared tour includes an entertaining commentary from your chauffeur. Parents often find that our tours are educational and fun for their children too as our guides will adjust their commentary to appeal to the demographic of their passengers.

The shared tour will take the same route as our private tours and last 45 minutes, starting and ending at our station on Water Lane.

We hope you enjoy your punting tour.

Our shared tours are very popular and accommodate up to 9 passengers and are always a great way for smaller groups to see the sights with other tourists and locals on a day out.

Alternatively you may wish to book a private tour. Please see the private tour page.

There are selection of non alcoholic and alcoholic beverages available to purchase from our cafe. The most popular drinks are available to reserve during the online checkout process.
