Annual Tidal Thames Navigators' Club evening

Members are invited to our annual recreational pre-season safety briefing on-board a vessel in London. The event takes place in March each year.

The evening will consist of topics from representatives of the Port of London Authority Harbour Master’s team, as well as guest speakers covering a range of different subjects in relation to the Thames.

Invites go out early February, each year, to all Tidal Thames Navigators' Club Members and places can be booked via the link in the email invite.

Tidal Thames Navigators' Club river trips

During the early/middle part of each year we offer exclusive river trips to our members. These take place in our Upper District, in sections from Greenwich to Teddington.

Trips are conducted on one of our Harbour Launches and you will be accompanied by one of our Upper Harbour Masters. The information for the trips is communicated at our annual pre-season briefing evening and members can book via the Book it Bee website - once dates are released.

Be quick though as the trips are hugely popular and spaces are limited!

Tidal Thames Navigators' Club evening

The Port of London Authority has taken the unfortunate decision to cancel the annual Tidal Thames Navigators Club pre-season briefing, scheduled for Wednesday 25th March 2020, as a precautionary measure in light of the recent Coronavirus issue.
We will host the Briefing again 2021.

The evening consists of topics from representatives of the Port of London Authority Harbour Master's team, as well as guest speakers covering other various topics.

Joining the Tidal Thames Navigators' Club

The Tidal Thames Navigators’ Club has been created to give all recreational boaters easy access to information for their navigation on the tidal Thames. The club is FREE to join and its main aim is to provide direct communication between the Port of London Authority and all recreational boaters.

When joining the club you will be able to tell the Port of London Authority (PLA) about the boat you use on the river and the areas where you regularly use them. This will enable the PLA to send you navigational information that is tailored precisely to your needs.

As a boat owner it will also give you the increased security of knowing that the Harbour Master can get in touch with you easily should anything happen to your boat whilst you are ashore.

Other benefits of joining the club include free copies of PLA Tide Tables, Port Information handbook and a copy of PLA’s most current Recreational Users’ Guide for the tidal Thames posted to direct to you, as well as everything mentioned in the above.

Members will also be able to purchase our Mariners Guide to Bridges on the Tidal Thames with an exclusive members' discount of 15% and postage is free when you purchase any one of our A2 colour folio charts - a saving of 12%.
