Choose Your Perfect Cruise

Take to the Thames and explore the waterways of Reading, the quiet middle reaches of the Thames and see Berkshire and Oxfordshire from the water. River Trips are ideal for old and young alike, family days out and a quick break in the day.


As of July 5th we are open again but operating a reduced timetable with departures commencing from our Caversham Pier base. Tickets must be purchased online in advance.

As soon as we are able the timetable will be extended. Have a great time on the river, enjoy your cruise on the stunning River Thames.

Keeping Safe This Summer On The River

This summer is a little different on The Thames. We have made some changes to the way we operate for your safety and comfort as well as that of our crews. We want everyone to enjoy the fresh river air and relax with time to take in the beauty of the tranquil Thames. Our downloadable guide to keeping safe can be found here. We have also highlighted key points below. If at any time you are unsure or feel you need assistance please don’t hesitate to speak to the skipper or crew on your vessel – they are they for your safety.

At the current time we are unable to allow pushchairs and buggies onboard. You are welcome to leave them on the pier at your own risk.
