Our public trips are on Saturdays and Sundays at 12 noon and 2pm from April to October and on Thursdays at 2.30 from May to September.

Jubilee complete with fully trained crew is available for charter hire with trip times to suit you and run for as long as you wish, typically from around 90 minutes to 4 hours. Jubilee is ideal for parties of up to 25, with a maximum passenger limit of 29.Customers are welcome to bring a picnic or other catering but please note that serving space is very limited. We can also arrange catering for you. There is a fully licensed bar on board with wine, beer, cider and lager available. You may bring your own alcoholic drinks with our prior agreement.
