We rented the boat for 2 hours for my friends hen party and from start to finish it was amazing! Nicole was incredible, making sure we were all having a good time and that we had everything we needed.

Booked a 2hr cruise for the beginning of a hen party. Great way to start off the day, the cruise was perfect for drinks and games, and the staff went out of their way to be kind.

For something a little different, set sail under the canal’s historic bridges and Georgian streetscape. Sip bubbly on arrival, soak in the canal scenery on deck, and unwind in our dining saloon with personalised catering and entertainment. We ensure flexibility with tailored sailing times and extended durations, accommodating up to 60 people for a drinks reception and 44 for a sit-down meal. Our dedicated team ensures a hassle-free and memorable hen party.

Will I get seasick?

There is no danger of anyone experiencing seasickness on a canal trip. This is because the canal is always completely calm, and our barge, being 48 tonnes in weight, cruises along slowly and smoothly with no rolling of any kind. Our barge is propelled by two electric motors which operate silently.

What duration will the barge be cruising during a Private Event?

Private events can be of any duration. Typically, they run for 2, 3 or 4 hours. On a 4-hour event, we typically spend 2 to 3hours cruising, but this will all be agreed upon in advance at time of booking

Can customers bring their own food?

In general, all of the food consumed at an event is freshly prepared in our galley on board. Customers are, however, welcome to bring small snack items themselves if they are not planning to have substantial food at their event (for example, for a drinks-only event).

Can customers bring their own drinks?

Yes. We apply a corkage fee to any drink customers wish to provide themselves. However, we have a fully stocked bar on board and can offer to provide special wines and cocktails to order as required

Can customers decorate the boat?

Customers are welcome to decorate the boat as required, but do need to coordinate this carefully with our crew.
