Welcome to Turk Launches – A 310 year old, family run, Thames river boat company. 

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Public health England restrictions, we have had to adapt our services for this year. 

What this means for you: Each trip will be 40 minutes in duration departing and arriving back at the same pier, no drop off point on route. The piers we will be using this year will be Turks Pier in Kingston and St Helena Pier in Richmond. 

This is so that we can manage to disinfect “hot spots” on the boat between sailings without disrupting the passenger experience. We will still be running a bar in the vessel as effectively and safely as we can. 

What it means for you is 40 minutes easy relaxation out on the water, enjoying all the nature and sights that our local riverside has to offer. 

Our staff will be wearing masks and face shields when any interaction with customers is required, they will be smiling behind them and are always happy to help where they can. 

Our vessels and piers are all marked out with the current guidelines taken into account. If you have any questions we are always happy to help just drop us an email an email and we will get back to as soon as we can
