Join us on board if you just feel like treating yourself to some great tunes with a spectacular river backdrop. All our boats are warm and enclosed and have fully-licenced bars.

Your ticket includes include a glass of wine as you step aboard; a delicious BBQ style buffet supper  and disco with professional DJ.

Our party nights often sell out well in advance: scroll down for the list of themes and dates – and book early to secure your perfect celebration. Whatever the theme, fancy dress is always welcome onboard.

We look forward to welcoming you to the party!

“Great fun! Perfect girlie night out to suit all ages. The DJ is very accommodating at playing requests!” Miranda

“Went on the Mamma Mia party boat and it was fabulous, from stepping aboard to getting off. Fun, friendly and efficient staff, great food and the boat was comfortable and warm… Really nice experience.” Andrea

“Absolutely one of the best experiences of my life. Came for my hen party and couldn’t rate it any better. Music to suit everyone, plenty of food to go around and the barman was brilliant. We didn’t want to get off!” Charlotte

– Hawaiian burger – a juicy quarter-pounder with chargrilled pineapple and Monterrey Jack cheese.
– Tennessee pulled BBQ pork sub
