With over 50yrs experience as the original ticketed boat party, a great atmosphere is guaranteed! A memorable way to party with friends, family & colleagues. Eat, drink, gossip and dance to the sounds of a top Thames DJ playing party anthems from the past to the present, think 'good fun party music'.  Birthdays, Office parties, Hens, Stags & Group celebrations are among our regular bookings. After you’ve danced ’til you’ve dropped, enjoy the ever changing illuminated sights of London and grab a selfie with Tower Bridge providing the perfect backdrop! The fun doesn't have to stop when we drop anchor. For those wanting an ‘after party, we offer FREE guest-list entrance to a nearby nightclub. By combining the biggest fleet of well-maintained party boats with a welcoming Crew, and offering the biggest selection of dates (we run every weekend throughout the year!) we really do provide incredible value, emphasised by many repeat bookings from happy Sailors!

    Visited 4 days ago Written by Daniel
    Positive, crew was very cordial and the cruise was very plasent. Negative, food was not good good ( I m really trying to be polite). No tables for everyone, I d rather pay 10£ more but have a reserved table. Yobs on board ( thanks for the security gentleman on board), this is what annoyed me the most, maybe it would be worth to have age related cruise groups??? Music it was average hip hop rap and at the end 70s and 80s
