Whatever YOUR occasion,

we can offer a variety of boat trips to suit your occasion and budget.



Discover one of England’s most beautiful rivers  from the safety and comfort of ‘Seagull’, our classic 31 foot Mitchel launch. This beautiful stretch of Shakespeare’s Avon just can’t be beaten, from lavish houses to glimpses of herons and kingfishers. You can choose to help with locks, bring your own picnic, or just sit back and enjoy the river.

Our trip boat has an open area for you and your friends to socialise. There are full washroom facilities onboard. We are available to charter with our experienced skipper and operate between Stratford-upon-Avon and Welford-on-Avon. We are licenced to carry up to 12 passengers, but for longer trips 8 passengers allows for more space and comfort.

To book a trip or for more information please contact us by telephone or email. We are very flexible so please call us to discuss your requirements. We may be able to accommodate last minute bookings.

River Cruises & Celebrations

We also collaborate with Stratford Bike Hire if you would like to combine a bike ride along the Greenway (a car-free cycle path) with a boat trip on the Avon, for a more energetic and unique way to enjoy the countryside. Our Bike ‘n’ Boat tour is great for groups of friends, corporate events, Guide and Scout groups or even hen parties! Starting either in Stratford or in Welford spend the day (or half day) touring the Warwickshire and Cotswold countryside by bike. Then finish your day with a cruise along the River Avon back to your starting point. Please call to discuss your requirements.

For children’s pirate parties please see THE PIRATE PARTY BOAT page - a 90 minute cruise on The Pirate Party Boat plus 30 minute use of our boathouse for the birthday food. With treasure hunt, Jolly Roger, parrot and swords - only £150 for up to 10 children to include treasure bags.
