THANK YOU!! We booked the Pirate Boat on 9th June at 3:30pm. The kids loved every second, the adults even more so. This trip was for our middle sons birthday and I think we will be booking again for the youngest! Excellent Day.

I hired the Pirate Boat as a surprise for my husband birthday. Carla was great in helping keep this a secret for me. Thank you so much for taking us up the river and letting the boys drive the boat! It was an amazing experience… thank you all!

What a lovely way to spend 45 minutes, the guide was informative the crew and waitresses were friendly. If you find yourself with an hour to spend at leisure in Shrewsbury then this is how I recommend you spend it.

Myself and my wife Susan recently (26/03) spent a few hours in Shrewsbury and decided to take in a cruise on the river. Anyone who visits Shrewsbury should make this experience a must do!!! You will not be disappointed.

A lovely boat trip along the river lasts for 45 minutes with commentary along the way about Shrewsbury and some of the local landmarks. It is a good price as well and well worth doing if you are in the area would recommend.
