My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this boat trip as part of a our coach operators package. We were greeted at the quay side by the town crier a tall man of 7' 2" who was really quite a character. Photographs were a must at this point of course. We were then welcomed aboard by the crew, and given a... More

It was a nice little trip along the River Severn, complete with an onboard bar, sitting on the covered top deck enjoying a pint of guinness. And all for a reasonable price too.

This seemed like a good idea and we managed to squeeze onto two of the last seats on the boat. The trip was very gentle and the live running commentary was extremely knowledgeable, amusing and kept us informed and interested the whole time. Tea/ Coffee was offered and accepted.Cold drinks were also available. Altogether a thoroughly enjoyable trip, just vwas... More

We booked an overnight stay at type Telford Whitehouse Hotel (our regular hotel for the Ironbridge attractions) which included a boat trip for the family. However after I called Sabrina Cruises I was informed that there where no sailings on the 30th October although it is advertised that cruises end in November. The hotel dealt with the problem well and... More

Very good value, very informative with excellent commentary. Very friendly crew who after the cruise were helpful to answer any questions. Had excellent cafetiere of coffee which was only £2.00 each. We will go again in the spring.Overall an excellent trip and very good value.

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...
