Like you, we have been awaiting more detailed information regarding a proposed completion date for the maintenance work on the course and handover back from Canal & River Trust. Unfortunately, we have no involvement with the physical works or completion timeline, however, there is now water in the course, and whilst there is still work going on in the background, this is great news that a reopening date is seemingly getting closer.
As soon as we receive further information we will update you all and will publish the summer programme for the course.
Thanks for your patience and fingers crossed it won’t be long before we’re all back on the water.
Our breathtaking, high-speed powerboat trips take you along the tidal section of the River Tees. Get a stunning glimpse of our historic region’s wildlife, industry and landmarks on a sleek, modern powerboat!
Book a Tees Barrage powerboat trip and take friends and family on an exciting journey they won’t forget. Our powerboat tours are led by experienced guides to ensure you see the best of Teesside, including the Newport Bridge, Transporter Bridge and Riverside Stadium. This region is also home to diverse wildlife, on land, in the air and below the surface. So, you might even spot some playful seals and other interesting animals on the way!
We love this region. Our powerboat trips have been hugely popular with kids and adults alike who want a fun day out to explore the iconic landmarks of Teesside from the water. Imagine skimming the surface of the river alongside the region’s major landmarks at top speed. If you fancy seeing the world from a different viewpoint, these powerboat trips are for you! Needless to say, it’s a guarantee that you’ll return to shore with your hair well and truly ruffled.
When you get back to land, why end the day there? Finish off your visit by exploring the rest of Tees Barrage. Get the high ropes experience on our Air Trail course, enjoy tea and cake at The Barrage Cafe, or stroll through the beautiful nearby nature reserve.
