Boat Hire & Private Cruises

City Dock Tour

Take your own private tour of Bristol's Floating Harbour

City Dock Tour

Perfect for a guided tour exploring Bristol's fascinating maritime history or a short cruise with reception drinks to follow your wedding ceremony or bring your conference to a close.

This trip can depart from any public landing stage in the Floating Harbour and works well with a visit to other dockside attractions. An informative and entertaining live commentary can be provided on request.

Please note that this cruise does not provide views of Clifton Suspension Bridge.

All boats have a fully licensed bar so we do not allow you to bring your own drinks. Prosecco reception and nibbles available by arrangement.
