Party Nights Afloat

Today's cruise timetable

Combined City Cruise & Bus Tour

Half Hour City Cruise

Combined Two-hour Iron Bridge Cruise & Bus Tour

Two-hour Iron Bridge Cruise

We’re going to make this a night to remember!

Our three-hour party cruises are perfect for large or small groups – birthdays, works socials, hen parties, leaving parties – whatever the occasion. In fact who needs an occasion? Join us on board if you just feel like treating yourself to a great night out. All our boats are warm and enclosed and all have a fully-licenced bar.

Your ticket includes include a glass of wine as you step aboard; a delicious BBQ style supper (including Curly Pork Sausage, Peppered Beef Burger, Marinated Chicken Skewer, Minted Lamb Koftas, Coleslaw, Mixed Leaf Salad, Bread and Sauces. Special dietary requirements catered for: just let us know at the time of booking), plus
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.

Whichever night you choose, fancy dress is welcome – in fact we positively encourage it.
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
