NB. Please let us know if wheelchair access is required for both the boat AND the return coach.

NB. Please be aware that this cruise is through restricted narrow shallow channels. Houseboats and yachts break down or may be stranded in our path. We leave the main shipping channel to show you extra vistas that normal, non boaties, would never see. There will always be a small element of hold ups.

On rare occasions, you may return to your departure point up to 6pm. Security gates at Northshore Hamilton will remain open for our passengers.
