Tickets are not refundable or changeable unless we have made the decision to cancel the trip.


Vouchers or discounts cannot be applied after a ticket has been purchased.  We offer one adult and one child rate per trip and are unfortunately unable to offer free places to carers, guardians or similar due to passenger number restrictions on our vessels.  Evidence of discount entitlement will be required and pre-booking is essential.

COVID-19 Update
We have released the following statement with regards to the current COVID-19 pandemic.

The health and safety of our staff and the general public is our first priority. We would like to reassure you that we are closely monitoring UK Government and Public Health England advice on a daily basis. At present, the official advice is to assume business as usual and this is what we intend to do until further notice.

In line with daily risk assessments carried out, we have implemented what we believe to be appropriate infection prevention and control measures within our business, in order to protect our staff and the general public so far as is reasonably possible. This includes the display of informative posters on handwashing techniques, common symptoms of COVID-19 and what to do if you feel unwell.

These posters adhere to official UK Government, Public Health England and the National Health Service advice. In addition, passenger numbers will be limited in order that passengers can either be out in the fresh air or if under cover, are not
seated too close together.

At present, we urge people not to panic but to take reasonable precautions in order to protect themselves and those around them.
Based on current advice, we will not be cancelling any events at present however, we are aware that this situation is fast-evolving and advice may well change in the coming days and weeks. As such, our usual cancellation policy will apply.
