calendar availability

Biggest Availability

We pride ourselves in being able to offer the biggest availability of dates, due to having access to the biggest fleet of London party boats. Meaning we run every weekend, all year! During December we add even more dates!

Zero Hassle

You can be assured of a ‘plain sailing’ booking experience. We’re experts and we won’t make you feel like walking the plank! Never a hard sell, always a willingness to be flexible and a quick and knowledgeable reply to any of your questions. Our Captain Chat Bot or FAQs may hold an immediate answer. 

Flexible Payments

Unlike Pirate’s, we don’t hold you to ransom. We treat you as our treasure! You may not know your exact group size straight away, let alone get your group to commit and pay! You can make a provisional booking, pay a deposit, then the remainder 1 week before setting sail, via card or bank transfer.

Trusted by Agents & Suppliers

Think you’ve seen a similar cruise on another website? You probably have. We have numerous party planning Agents and Suppliers that place their bookings with us. So even if you don’t book with us directly, there’s a likelihood that we’ll still be welcoming you aboard our Ship.

Discounted Prices

We love groups and recognise the efforts of the Organiser. We reward groups of 20+ with a discounted price and we include a free ticket for the Organiser or the Birthday boy/girl or Hen/Stag. We believe we offer the best value but still offer a price match promise. Emergency Services receive a special discount too.

Happy Shipmates

Our Crew enjoy getting high fives from happy Shipmates at the end of the night. We pride ourselves in welcoming back familiar faces and have a long list of repeat bookings who are rewarded with a discounted price. If you want to ensure you don’t miss out on special offers – sign up.

Pre & Post Cruise Options

Some like to start the party early, others start later but party on until the sun comes up. That’s why we offer recommendations to help you plan your night out. Whether you’re after a bar for the group to meet up pre-cruise and enjoy some 2-4-1 cocktails or want guest-list entrance to a club after the cruise – we have it sorted!

It is a fantastic night. We did it for my 30th in the summer and had the best time ever. So much so, I want to re-book for my staff Xmas party. We’re in the police and sometimes worry about these sort of trips but it was honestly a great atmosphere with no trouble. I can’t recommend it enough.
