We recently visited Sabrina boat for a trip along the Severn. It was really excellent, the staff very polite and friendly. We were able to order drinks and a snack, which made this even more enjoyable, especially as the sun was shining. The commentary was very interesting and informative, and I would recommend this to anyone visiting Shrewsbury for the... More

An excellent and a relaxing boat trip on the Severn between Welsh and English bridges and return. Weather was excellent and a good commentary given on the historical buildings etc in Shrewsbury and learned something new about the town which I didn't know before. Will recommend to anyone to have a cruise on this section of the river. We will... More

Lovely weather, lovely trip down the River Severn with historical commentary about Shrewsbury as we sailed along. Very pleasant. Sabrina Boats advertise 'themed' nights, which seem like great fun - if only we'd stayed longer . . .

Spent a very enjoyable time, on a sunny afternoon, with a couple of friends on the Sabrina boat. Although we all live in Shrewsbury, we found the commentary very educational and informative. The staff were excellent, and although it would be a little pricey to treat a family to tea and cake, we felt that it represented good value for... More

An owner managed trip boat with one open and one inside deck. The owner drives, commentates, and meet and greets, with the help of a cheerful crew. Booked seats, table service for drinks, and special events. We went as a group, on a lovely sunny afternoon, and it was a very enjyable 45 minutes. The breeze on the river can... More

A very enjoyable trip boat with polite and well mannered staff, the trip we took was a themed ghost talk that runs every Monday evening, it's a 45 minute cruise along the river Severn with commentary about the ghosts and history of Shrewsbury and a chance to see parts of the town from a very different angle to the everyday...

Had a lovely trip on the Severn in Shrewsbury between the Welsh and English bridges. It was brilliant. The commentator clearly knew his stuff and spoke well and humourously about places on the river bank as well as some interesting facts about Shrewsbury in general. The weather was lovely which added to the great experience. Would really recommend it.

It was a really interesting and relaxing way to have a look at the town from a different perspective and to hear about the history.

As it was a lovely day we decided to go on the boat tour, having seen a flier in a local cafe. Although the trip is 45 minutes it doesn't go far, there is very little commentary as there really isn't that much of interest to see, and it is very expensive for what it is (cost us £16 for... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review, it is always good to have peoples feedback. The scheduled 45 minute day trips that you are referring to gently sail around the river loop of Shrewsbury. We have found from experience that the outbound journey to the English bridge is a nice time for people to order refreshments, have... More
