My father chose this for his birthday treat. And we were very pleased he did. Having lived in the Bristol area for years, it was a brilliant way to spend 3+ hours on a Saturday afternoon. We had a trip around the harbour and then...More

We had this hired for a friends birthday - we had a few stop off points - bar on board and had music of our own choice - was an amazing day albeit a bit of rain!

As seniors, the trip cost us £6 each and well worth the money to be taken around the Port of Bristol with a running commentary on the ports history and its attractions. Light refreshments were also available on board.

We went on the 45 minutes round trip on a sunny Saturday afternoon and at £6.50 each it was very good value. We boarded near the SS Great Britain and the boat went up river into the inner harbour with a short stop for pick...More

Booked a private boat for 19 women to celebrate a birthday. Superb fun experience. Would highly recommend any party to do the same. It was a surprise for all the women and they loved it, great staff, friendly and allowed us to have fun. Awesome!!!!!!!!

Hi, I'm planning a hen do for 10 and we are doing a sailor theme so this would be perfect! What package do you recommend for a little boat trip with lots of fun and alcohol?

I do not, as I am a customer. They do have schedules on their website. Google bristolpacket and go to their website. I'd link it but TA does not allow hyperlinks.
