Boat Hire & Private Cruises

River Cruise

River Cruise

Leave the city behind and travel upstream onto rural stretches of the beautiful Avon. Cruise through picturesque woodland and past Eastwood Farm Nature Reserve, keeping your eye out for Herons and Kingfishers.

This trip can depart from any public landing stage in the Floating Harbour before heading upstream towards Bath. A three hour cruise can usually travel as far as Hanham Lock before turning.

During 'Spring Tides' access to the river may be restricted. Call our office or submit an enquiry to check availability and tides for your preferred date.

All boats have a fully licensed bar so we do not allow you to bring your own drinks. We can provide a range of catering options for you to enjoy on board.
