COVID-19 Policy - updated as of 25/02/21
Ahoy Shipmates. Finally there be wind in our sails! The Government announced on the 22/02 that they anticipate removing all restrictions on the 21st June. Meaning, we fully intend on setting sail again on Saturday 26th June 2021. Regretfully, it means we are still unable to operate the cruises until then, but at least we can ride the wave of optimism.
Granted the current restrictions are a disappointment to us all but we are hoping that it helps to ensure the desired impact is achieved as quickly as possible. If we all conform and act responsibly, we enable an opportunity to bounce back as quickly and as safely as possible. Your safety remains our highest priority at London Boat Party and our thoughts are with those who are affected by this virus, along with those who are caring for them.
The Government has stated that the 21st June will be 'at the earliest' and that they may alter the road map with just 7 days notice. If that were to be the case than rest assured, you will be refunded should you not wish to postpone.
New bookings: Is your glass half full? High fives for positivity! Our 2021 dates (from June 26th) are available to book with a 100% 'no Pirates guarantee'! If restrictions prevent us from cruising on the date of your booking, you can either choose to re-schedule or receive a full refund.
For current bookings: If you have booked a cruise that can not go ahead, we will be in contact. You will have the option to re-schedule or be refunded. Likewise, for those that have had to reschedule a previous booking, please get in touch. We thank all those that have shown forbearance in supporting us and we look forward to welcoming you aboard as soon as possible.
Other cruises you can enjoy between the 12th April - 19th June: When the 'rule of 6' comes into play (where by up to 6 people from different households can mix) from 12th April OUTDOORS and from the 17th May INDOORS, we are offering some 'alternative' cruises to our usual boat party. Like our FACEBOOK page or subscribe to receive updates. See our special events page for details of our 2 evening cruises, which are the closest to our usual boat party format. We also have a Saturday brunch cruise and the 'thrill rides' are awesome fun too and great for groups between 2 and 12. We offer lunch, afternoon tea and dinner cruises throughout the week too. We can also provide 'exclusive boat hire' options for those looking for a private celebration. Ideal for a small family cruise on the river, or to mark a special celebration. Get in contact and we'll be able to discuss all the options with you. Click to download a PDF with the alternative cruises.
We look forward to 'pulling up the anchor' and 'casting off' with a boat full of happy Shipmates and great party vibes as soon as we get the go ahead (hopefully on the 26th June). Whilst we've had to drop anchor, we implore everybody to be responsible and 'do their bit' and help make the virus 'walk the plank', not just for us but for all the businesses and industries that have been impacted due to covid-19.
