Availability and exclusions


Private hire is available on days we are already operating at 12pm, 1pm, 2pm, 3pm & 4pm if food and drink is involved other than lite nibbles, it needs to be our last cruise for the day.


These price options don't apply to the Christmas Lights cruises, public holidays or special event dates (Crab Fest, Easter weekend and between Christmas and New year). Christmas lights cruises sell out and are only available for 5 weeks of the year, our private hire cost for Christmas lights reflects this. If you have a group close to 45-50 people maximum then it could be an option.

We also don't allow any adult entertainment onboard.
