We have been the biggest Agency for private London Boat Hire on the river Thames for over 30yrs! The majority covering the Putney to the Thames Barrier stretch of the river (covering all the key sights).
Why hold your event on the Thames? Hiring a boat for your party on the Thames offers a whole host of advantages to the organiser. Originality and excitement! The cost of drinks are no more than a typical London bar. The ever changing London sights and the floodlit beauty of the Thames at night has a timeless appeal and an entertainment value all of its own. It is the perfect backdrop for everything from your wedding reception to a bash for the staff and social club. We should know. We originated the concept of the shared party cruise back in 1966 and since then have arranged over 5000 private parties, from Product Launches to Corporate Staff Parties, Birthday Parties, Weddings, River Transfers and Club Nights.
Our staff have the knowledge and first hand experience of all of the vessels on our books. Our recommendation does not come lightly. We have built relationships over the years with owners that will ensure that your planned event will go smoothly. More importantly we will put you on the best boat suited to the style and budget of your party. Without inside knowledge, the facts and figures that face the organiser can appear bewildering. There are boats from 2 to 620 capacity. Most have varying rates according to the day of the week and time of day (FYI daytime and midweek is cheaper than evening and weekends). A few have large outside decks, some no outside areas at all. Certain vessels have the advantages of 2 or 3 bars. Some DJ's are cheaper than others. The costs of providing your own catering can vary from £2 to £6 + VAT. Some levy a 'soft drinks only surcharge', some don't permit under 18yrs, some require Security to be present. See what we mean! By booking a boat through us you can be rest assured you are in safe hands! By listening to your brief we will quickly recommend the right boat at the most competitive rates. In short, our knowledge and buying power works for you. It must be the right way to proceed as over 50% of our clients are repeat business.
We also operate on the upper stretch of the Thames between Surrey, Windsor and Henley. Discover the joys of upriver boating and take in the beautiful sites the upper Thames has to offer.
