Skippered boat hire

Do you have a special occasion to celebrate?… a birthday, an engagement, a graduation? Whatever the occasion our large boats are available for skippered hire and perfect if you want to do something different in the beautiful surroundings of the River Severn!
Our large boats can seat up to 7 people. They are powered by HONDA outboards, and all have a cuddy in the bow for protection from the weather. These beautiful boats have lots of character and plenty of seating and floor space for your occasion.

Picnic on the river

No time to sort the food? We recommend taking advantage of our ‘pack a picnic’ service where we arrange the picnic for you and have it ready for your arrival on the day. We use a provider nearby who source their produce locally, it’s all freshly made and presented in a gorgeous rustic picnic basket, no single use plastic here!
