We were fortunate enough to go on the last cruise of the day on the last cruise of the season - I think that they close down after October until about March. There were only four other people on the boat besides us so it felt like a private hire! It was a wonderful relaxed way to see Shrewsbury from... More

My husband hired the sabrina in August 2014 for his 40th. It was a brilliant night. We and 30 friends had sole use of the boat from 7 in the evening until 1am. Once everyone was on board, the captain steered us up and down the river until 10pm when it moored up again, while my husband dj'd and the... More

The sun came out after a horrible morning raining and it couldn't have timed it better. We were there on the last weekend of the season and so thankful we didn't miss it. Going towards the English bridge we could take in all the wonderful Autumn colours. A nice hot chocolate to warm us through. There was alcohol available too.... More

We took the 45 minute trip between the Welsh and English bridges. Being late in the season there weren't many on the boat but they served a reasonable selection of drinks and snacks. The captain gave a commentary on the way back, which was informative and jovial. We enjoyed the trip very much and will recommend and use again next... More

I booked the Sabrina boat private hire on Saturday night for my husband's 30th birthday and can highly recommend this company for a special occasion. I opted for a three course meal and DJ and disco for 40 people; the Sabrina was perfect for a party of this size and made for a very special evening. On boarding the boat,... More

A very relaxing boat trip. A lovely way to see some of the town from the river and the commentary was very entertaining and informative. Well worth the money.

An enjoyable morning spent on the river looking at the historical sites and hearing some of the history of Shrewsbury and the river itself. Good value and very informative.
