We offer pre-booked River Cruises on the River Trent on our 60’ purpose-built boat from Newark Marina for Care Homes, Special Needs, Community or Educational Groups.
(Please Note that unfortunately we are not able to accommodate individual passengers or members of the public.)
We cater for groups of up to 12 passengers (including carers). We only operate pre-booked trips. We can be flexible, but typically we offer 2 hour cruises morning and afternoon, mostly on weekdays, but we are able to offer evenings and weekends by arrangement.
It is equipped with a ramp for wheelchair access and there is a large disabled toilet. Each trip always goes with a fully qualified skipper and at least one other crew member. On board we try to give commentary on the surroundings as some of our passengers are blind or partially sighted. Seating on deck or undercover is provided for the comfort of the passengers.
The cost of the service is £6 per person and we ask for a minimum contribution of £60 per trip towards our costs.
(Our operating cost is estimated at £100 per trip. We are strictly a charity, our crew are unpaid volunteers, and the boat is funded solely by charitable donations. So if you feel you can make a further contribution to the charity to boost our funds, for maintenance and on board refreshments, to keep this pleasurable activity going, it will of course gratefully received).
