Only passengers on the 12:00 sailing on an October Wednesday. The skipper and his mate made us very welcome and the commentary was tailored to us - more like a conversation with a knowledgeable local. Two excellent Gin/tonics for £8.00

A very pleasant trip down the river. Personally I appreciated being able to sit back, relax and enjoy the scenery with a pot of tea rather than having commentary on both halves of the journey.

For anybody visiting Shrewsbury, or anybody new to living in Shrewsbury, the Sabrina boat ride is a must do. The boat ride along the calm and very pleasant River Severn is a good afternoons activity. You get to learn a lot about Shrewsbury in general, as well as the river and its past. The captain is very informative and will... More

We had expected some sort of commentary from the start as with other cruises but apart from the brief safety blurb there was nothing until the halfway point when the boat started on its return trip. If this is normal procedure then it would have been good to have let passengers know what to expect. The commentary when we did... More

Thank you for your feedback, we are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the commentary on board the Sabrina Boat. We choose not to provide a full commentary throughout the cruise because we feel this allows people to sit back, enjoy the scenery, order refreshments and talk amongst themselves for half of the journey, while having the chance...

A great way of seeing and learning about Shrewsbury and what history and architecture it has to offer . First half of tour done without commentary so you can look at whatever you want whilst on the return journey a great commentary educates and amuses with regards to the sights . A variety of refreshments are available on the boat... More

We hopped on Sabrina for a boat trip with our little one who was very excited! A warm welcome from all the staff, quick service with the drinks and interesting commentary on the return journey.

We went for the barbecue and singer cruise for £20 night in August. It said it started at 7pm so we presumed we would get the food at 7pm- already quite late for us to eat our evening meal but we were told that the boat would go up and down the river for 30mins first (so people had to... More

Thank you for your feedback, we would like to take this opportunity to respond to some of the points that you have raised. There appears to be some breakdown in communication to the outlay of the evening to what you were expecting to which we apologise. Nearly all of our private hire and themed evenings commence at 7pm although we... More
