    Santa Trips

    Sorry, but Santa needs to look after his Elf this year! But look at our Christmas Special trips instead (below)

    We hope that Santa will be able to join us again in 2021 – check back here later in 2021.

    Christmas Special

    A hugely enjoyable seasonal trip to Widbrook and back in our Christmas decorated boat, with Christmassy music. During this 1 hour trip we’ll serve a delicious non-alcoholic mulled wine (since Covid regulations prohibit us from serving alcohol), fruit juice or another soft drink (for children) and warmed minced pies for all.

    While Santa is not able to come on board this year (for Covid reasons, so he can look after his “Elf”!), all children will be given a small Christmas Gift Bag containing a number of seasonal gifts and decorations.

    In true Christmas spirit, even children under 3 yrs old (i.e. 2 yrs or under) who travel free will receive fruit juice, a mince pie and Christmas Gift Bags.

    We have Christmas Special trips every day at 1130am and 2pm from Saturday 19 to Thursday 24 December 2020 plus a couple of later trips on Saturday 19th and Wednesday 23rd.

    We hope you’ll be able join us (with children, grandchildren, relatives and friends) for a bit of seasonal jollity on board.

    Just to repeat: This is NOT our normal Santa trip since, for Covid reasons, Santa is not able to make an appearance on our boat this year.
