Know More about this tour

Join this short trip, giving time for the best sights and time to relax. We will pause to enjoy the view at Pulteney Weir where you can enjoy an on-board glass of prosecco, beer or choice of other drinks to purchase from our crew.

On sunny days, the cockpit roof will be open to the sunshine, while on cooler days the real coal fire will keep the saloon toasty warm. As you enjoy your trip in this authentic and lovingly restored 1960s small cruiser, your skipper will point out the key attractions.

You'll see the entrance to the Kennet and Avon Canal, which links London with the Bristol Channel, and cruise under North Parade Bridge. Look out for nesting peregrine falcons at 19th-century St. John's Church, and marvel at the views of Pulteney Bridge, the rushing weir, and the city centre architecture, including 17th-century Bath Abbey.

  • This tour was great. We've been to Bath and done the Hop-on Hop-off bus a few times now, so was interested in seeing Bath from another perspective. The river cruise was excellent. Only a short tour and make sure you stand up in the cabin with the captain! Full of interesting facts.

  • Great value, informative, very nice captain, and highly recommended! We were running 10 minutes late and the captain amazingly waited for us! The tour was fun and a great introduction to Bath. Thanks!!

  • Highly recommended. Excellent customer service. Loved it. Paul and Esther were brilliant.

  • just a simple boat ride with not much of a view except closer to pulteney weir.. which u can also see by walking

  • Was boring and unattractive scenery

  • Purchased tickets through Viator for this excursion - very convenient. Fantastic, brilliant tour exactly what we wanted. The skipper was a knowledgeable yachtsman, friendly and most professional. Young company only been in operation 12 months. Highly recommend to anyone keen to view the city from the river. My opinion the best angle Just long enough for the River Avon. Next time we come we would like to book on their lunch cruise longer. We siled the 10.30am time. Tip make use of the parking in Southgate near Denhams most economical and a very short walk to mooring I was on crutches and managed

    It was difficult to see on line from the pictures whether the boat had roof or not - it does but there is a small section up the front where you can stand and see very clearly everything. Ideal for small groups. Perfect length for small children. Highly recommend Sarajane

  • It was a very nice river cruise. We really enjoyed it.

  • Happy and friendly. Informative about the history. Boat clean and safe.

  • Would recommend this river tour over any other in Bath! Host was super friendly and it was obvious we was very knowledgeable about the area. Would 100 recommend and will do it again next time we visit the city.

  • nice ride
