Private Hire Trips


Bristol's blue and yellow boats have served as venues for
an eclectic range of parties and events over the last 40 years


Call our office on 0117 927 3416 to plan your perfect trip!


How does it work?

  • All of our Private Hire trips are tailored to your needs, which boat you would prefer to be on, where we can pick you up and drop you off after, and which pub stops you would like to have.

  • Usually, we take 1 hour cruising around the harbour with a cash-only bar on board (see below) and either two our three 40-minute pub stops - our crew will collect you with plastic cups to decant your drinks to enjoy on board!

  • Brigantia, Matilda and Emily, all have a bar, PA System and toilet available and are the most popular choice for Private Hire.

  • Independence and Margaret are our two fair-weather boats without toilet or bar but allow you to bring your own drinks without paying corkage, perfect for the warmer months.

You can start your trip at any of the public landing stages in Bristol Harbour or upriver on
The Avon and then visit the dockside pubs, have fish and chips delivered on board,
cruise upstream between the green, wooded banks of the Avon, hire your own DJ,
stop at your favourite restaurant; all you need is an idea and we'll help with the rest...
