White River Charters offers a choice of quality relaxing river experiences on the River Bann. 

Escape your daily stresses and take time to appreciate and enjoy the tranquillity of the river environment at a slow and gentle pace.

Our vintage vessel MV Kingfisher, was built in 1947, by the world-renowned Harland and Wolff shipbuilders in the historic Belfast Shipyard (of Titanic fame!) and has been beautifully restored and tailored to provide memorable experiences.

The River Bann, Northern Ireland’s longest river has been navigated since the Stone Age and played a crucial role in the settlement history of Ireland. We are experienced, qualified, and passionate about celebrating the river and sharing the story of our boat and how we restored a little piece of maritime history with you. You will hear about the fascinating history, treasures, nature, wildlife, myths, legends, and iconic species associated with this river.
