Community groups and schools

Community groups

We welcome charter bookings from all community groups and voluntary groups and offer a 10% discount to Registered Charities and Voluntary Organisations.




We are also pleased to take group bookings on public cruises, where we can arrange ploughman’s lunches and cream teas as well. Many smaller community organisations and care homes find this an ideal solution for their needs.

Schools, colleges and youth groups

We can work with you to turn the boat into a floating classroom. We offer a 25% discount for cruises on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.   We are limited to a total of 50 passengers (includes children and staff). Please contact us or download our leaflet for more details (clicking the leaflet link will download the document directly to your Downloads folder).

We can also offer a combined visit to the John Bunyan Museum with a trip on the boat, or arrange some History, Nature or Pirate themed activities for your class.

Our risk assessment template is available to download here. This is a document designed to help you plan your trip and carry out your own assessment. If you would like to arrange a pre-visit to the boat, please do get in touch.

We are proud to be a Cultural Provider for The Culture Challenge, and accept Culture Vouchers for school bookings.
