About Windfarm Tours

In January 2016 construction of the Rampion Windfarm started. By June 2018 all of the 116 wind turbines will be completed and operational. Producing  400MW of power to supply about 283,000 homes.

The scale of the project is best appreciated by boat. The trip lasts between 3-4 hours and departs from Brighton Marina. During the trip you will be taken close to the turbines and the construction vessels, to give a good impression of this engineering achievement.

Defiance is licensed under the MCA code of practice to carry 10 passengers. The vessel can be chartered privately or you can join arranged trips.
