Both boats are fitted with ramps and lifts for ease of boarding and are designed to take wheelchairs. The toilet cubicle on board is able to expand out to allow wheelchair passengers with carers to use it if needed.

There are various places to stop along the cruise for lunch if you wish, whether it be a picnic on the bank, use the galley for hot food or eat a meal at one of the many pub/restaurants along the way. If you do wish to book a meal at one of the riverside pubs, please allow an extra 1-1/2 hours in addition to the cruise time.

All our crews are volunteers and will operate the boats and our Skippers are all fully NCBA Qualified.

When at locks passengers are more than welcome to assist.

Cruises last typically from 4-7 hours, starting at £110.00 for 4 hours, then £15.00 per hour thereafter.

As our boats are 70ft in length, we are limited to a few places where we can turn around to return back to the marina. This can affect the length of cruise. Please ask at time of booking.

Our boats can carry a MAXIMUM of 12 passengers. If any passengers are wheelchair users and cannot transfer, they will count as 2 passengers.
