Luxury boat hire for Hen Parties on the River

Special Events

We've been providing bespoke boat trips and hospitality packages on the Thames for 20 years.  On this page we have listed a few popular options to give you an idea of what is possible.

This is by no means exhaustive, so give Steve a call on 07977 448 117 to discuss your own personal requirements.

Pre Dinner Cruise

Take full advantage of the numerous riverside restaurants on the Thames by arriving in style aboard one of our boats. A typical cruise would last 2 hours, giving plenty of time to relax and enjoy some drinks with your party while taking in some of the most beautiful reaches that the river has to offer. Many people like to start in Maidenhead, sailing past large riverside homes, down through Bray and Boveney locks and into the heart of Windsor for dinner. Alternatively you could start in Windsor and cruise in the opposite direction to end at The Waterside Inn, Fat Duck or Hinds Head restaurants. Our helpful and informative crew will point out various locations of interest along the way.

Corporate Hotel Trips

One of our most popular requests during the week, let us add some relaxation to your day. We can provide a cruise before or after lunch, or why not take a look at our menus.  Similarly an afternoon meeting on board or pre-dinner drinks offer an opportunity to benefit fully from the riverside hotels location, providing time to wind down and enjoy the beauty of the Thames.

An ideal addition to any stay at Cliveden, Oakley Court, Monkey Island or The Sir Christopher Wren Hotel.

Hen parties

Why not start your day with a pamper session in one of the Riverside Hotels followed by a leisurely 2 hour cruise to Windsor.
An ideal opportunity for a few drinks, silly games and a laugh with the girls.
Windsor offers many restaurants, pubs and clubs in which to continue until the early hours.

Bridal Carriage - Weddings

There are countless packages we have provided in the past to many happy couples, here's one we think works particularly well.

Make your special day a little more unique with a river transfer between the ceremony and reception. Enjoy a cold glass of champagne while your guests travel to the reception venue and we take a leisurely cruise along the river.

After a perfect photo opportunity on your arrival we can stay on for a couple of hours offering short trips to guests in small groups. This has the advantage of not breaking up the party while making full use of a riverside venue.

Our boats are a perfect way for a Bride & Groom to arrive or leave one of the excellent Riverside Wedding venues, for example:
The Runnymede Hotel
Wrens House Hotel
Oakley Court Hotel
Queens Eyot
Monkey Island
The Edwardian Marquee
The Waterside
Thames Riviera Hotel
Boulters Inn
The Compleat Angler

Any of the boats can have Champagne and ribbons aboard and can be decorated if required.

Two Boat Trips

More than 12 of you? Not a problem!

Some of the best parties we've had have been with bigger groups spread over two boats. Fringilla and Larus are perfectly suited to working together, providing for groups of up to 20. Alternatively with Fringilla and Sula we can take parties of up to 24 people.

Don't worry about splitting the group, we will almost certainly be going through locks where you are more than welcome to swap boats.

Birthdays & Anniversaries

Why not invite your closest friends and family for an intimate cruise along the river on your big day.

We can decorate the boat with balloons, banners etc. or you are welcome send an advance party down to personalise her yourself.

River Taxi

Enjoy a glass of champagne before dinner on on eof our River Taxi services. If you are planning a meal at a restaurant near the river why not enjoy a leisurely cruise from a nearby station or perhaps your office.

We cruise 7 days a week from March to October so if you have a special day please book early to avoid dissapointment.
