Due to the coronavirus pandemic all scheduled public cruises and private charters from 20th March to the 11th July 2020 have been suspended. This includes all supper, cream tea and picnic cruises as well as private charter.
If you have booked on one of our cruises between these dates, you be able to reschedule your cruise to an alternative date later in the summer, receive a monetary voucher which will be valid for 2 years or receive a full refund.
From the 12th July we intend to operate a Sailing Barge Experience that will be guided by advice from Public Health England and current best practices. We intend to announce the full details of our Summer season cruises by the 29th June 2020.
