Due to unforeseen circumstances we are unable

to operate the remaining 2 cruises to Worcester this season. Because of the low river levels an underwater obstruction has made it unsafe for us to travel to Worcester without damaging the vessel.


We will instead be running an additional Waterbus to Tewkesbury on Thursday 26th July and Thursday 30th August.


Passenger safety is of paramount importance and we are very sorry for any inconvenience caused.
