Ring for sailing times. The ticket office is round the other side of the building to the river, so it can be a bit of a mad dash. When we went a dog got loose as well! Which delayed the set off! Then we were pointed in the wrong direction!
Now that the Tees Barrier is in place, the Tees is at its former high tide mark the whole time, so boats as big as the Princess can meander down to Preston Park and Yarm. It is mostly used by pensioners, many of whom survive, and is well worth the trip. I was most interested to see the nature reserve near Thornaby and a huge new golf driving range. There is another golf course just across from Preston Park. The young male ushers couldn't quite stop themselves from singing selections from Chicago, and then made jokes about the gable end of one of the houses by the river (some of which had boats tied to moorings lucky swines.)
The jetty at Preston Park is well, insufficient to say the least, and very dangerous to say slightly more than the least. Still, at least it makes you feel like Indiana Jones.
The docks at Stockton and Yarm are more substantial , although the one at Yarm has destroyed the character of the river walk.
A perfect way to see this area of Teesside, and give you ideas for buying property, none of which is affordable any more.
It is a party ship by night though: a party ship.
