Cruising Rates for Private Hire (From 1st October 2022):
Prices include the boat, skipper and crew. Please bring or arrange your own food and drinks.
We offer 25% discount for local charities, not for profit and community groups. Please note the discount is reserved for groups bringing their client groups or volunteers on board for a session or celebration, not for staff only events. Please contact us if you would like more information.
The boat can take a legal maximum of 35 passengers. All babies and children no matter what age must be included in this head count.
Please bear in mind, the maximum capacity may not be suitable for your event. For example, if you require everyone to be seated around a table, the space is more comfortable with around 20 people. If you expect everyone to be seated for the whole journey, without needing a table, we usually suggest chairs up both sides of the boat (with optional buffet table at one end) – this layout is approx 28 seats.
