The powerboat tours are led by experienced guides to ensure you see the best of Teesside, including the Newport Bridge, Transporter Bridge and the 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!


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.

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 the Air Trail course, enjoy tea and cake at The Barrage Cafe, or stroll through the beautiful nearby nature reserve.
