Hey! Anyone who has done this... is there a cover if it rains? Is it weatherproof?! Thanks so much!

Hired the party cruise for my birthday, and all 40 of us had a brilliant time! The crew were great, and the fact that you can play your own music, and bring your own food and drink is a brilliant concept. I'd definitely recommend this to everyone, and would love to do it again!

Brilliant day out with fantastic staff, we had so much fun and couldnt fault it. The only in improvement is to have more contact details, we went on a Sunday couldnt find the boat at first & panicked as DMN was closed. Thank you for a great trip!!

This boat trip is so awesome! I would do it again tomorrow! Its so much fun and great value for money. Our captain Pat and milo were great! The whole thing was a great success! Will definitely book this again soon! Thanks for a brilliant time!

Celebrated my 21st with 10 friends on the boat and it was such a great experience! The boat ran a tiny bit late through to no fault of their own (weather was quite rough on the day) but the skipper we had was absolutely fantastic! She was so friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend, already thinking of making another booking this summer with family instead but this time during the day so we can actually enjoy the sights!

We had a family day out on board the canal boat and it was a very pleasant experience. The staff were so friendly. However, I'd say you need 3 hours minimum. We did the two hour trip but then found out to go past London Zoo, Camden etc you need at least three.

We had a staff party on the boat and it was a great night out! Excellent service, free to play music, beautiful views, BYO alcohol and nibbles, fantastic night to mingle with work, friends or go as a family outing

Really like the sound of this - definitely gonna book it out for my birthday weekend in July with some uni mates. Heard nothing but great things so will leave my verdict once i've done it!

We had our staff party on the boat and it was so much fun! The bosses brought lots of stuff to make cocktails and loads of nibbles. We were all very suitably merry after the journey and went out in Kings Cross after. The tunnel was fun too! Little tip: there is a tesco about 5 min walk from the boat to pick up supplies before heading off

your own personal boat, your choice of crowd and a cruise through London's canals? This sounds EPIC! Defintiely booking this for my July birthday - gimmie some sun England puhlease

Amazing way to experience the city AND have some drinks whilst you do it! If you're lucky enough to do this when the sun is shining I can vouch for one sick time you'll have

I think my face chops in the photo above say enough. Really unique option for a summer afternoon in the city. Diane is the biggest babe, you'll be in safe hands there!

A fantastic choice for a summer party. It would suit an office gathering, or something like a birthday party or just catching up with friends. Bring your own picnic, a few drinks and create a party playlist, and drift down one of the most beaut waterways in London. Arrange to hop off by a canal-side pub to carry on the party afterwards!!
29 Jan 2015 by

Such a cool night, may have been a bit nippy and they could do with heaters but we got to bring our own drinks and just enjoy the river (and the odd stare).And I didn't even go overboard (pretty unusual for topsy turvy me)

Fantastic quirky idea for a work Christmas do. Our driver/host was fantastic and very helpful with questions we had beforehand. Highly recommend it!!! Good facilities nicely decorated and weather proof. We had a lot of fun!
13 Dec 2014 by

Amazing experience, really friendly staff, you can take your own food, booze, music, cruise down the Regent's, really good day out and well worth the money for what you get.
