We have a variety of traditional passenger launches. Our 3 larger, electric powered Edwardian launches seat up to 58 and our 1 smaller electric launch that seats up to 30.  All of which have an enclosed rear saloon, and open front deck.
Our largest vessel available for hire is our flagship vessel, Titania. Custom built and fitted by us to provide a comfortable experience in any weather. Featuring a galley, a heated cabin, a toilet, outside seating, and a capacity of 56.  Fitted with a diesel/electric hybrid engine, Titania is the perfect boat for your private event.

School Groups

Teachers and guides pay the same price as children for school bookings and there is no minimum charge. Why not combine a cruise on the river with a visit to the next door Butterfly Farm? Contact the Butterfly Farm directly and place your booking with them.
