Grove Ferry Boat Club was founded in 1964.You will find the clubhouse, dating from the early seventies, on the south bank of the River Great Stour, (the second largest river in Kent) It lies just below the Grove Ferry Bridge, some 8 miles east of Canterbury. The Bridge replaced the old ferry in 1963.

We are an active boat club with various events, water activities, organized cruises in company, boat exercises etc. and with barbecues and other activities at Red House Marsh. (Our picnic facility some 4.5 miles downstream)

Social Events - Quizzes, Games and competitions, talks, visits and suppers are all held at the clubhouse on a regular basis.

The clubhouse is also open on Sunday afternoons throughout the year between 2.30pm and 4.30pm. (Except bank holiday weekends & Club Events) and all are welcome for tea, coffee and the odd cake, along with a little social banter!

The club has some 20 moorings on the north Bank and we are developing storage / use facilities for dinghies, canoes etc. in our compound, and we now have easy launching facilities with the new slipway.
