Rowing eights, punts, university boats and large pleasure cruisers come together in a lively display of all that the river has to offer.

A MUST DO,
This really is a wonderful little cruise. We ambled down the river to Iffey lock on a lovely little boat, (with a quick stop for a drink at the local pub) and back, weather was perfect, which was a bonus, and the “skipper” was very informative and fun. Next time we are in Oxford, we would certainly do a trip with them again.

Gentle quiet tour down the river
Jul 2021
With only a small number of passengers plus a quiet engine ( and add the optional Pimm's) what a lovely way to spend time on the river.

Would have liked a longer cruise option, no sure of the logistics on that.

Excellent trip, unfortunately afternoon tea trip was fully booked so we booked afternoon tea separately at The Folly and then took the 1/2 hour boat trip which tied in well.
Skipper was informative and knowledgeable and trip was very scenic - would highly recommend

Beautiful river cruise.
Jul 2021
The whole river cruise was most entertaining and the commentary was very interesting and informative. Lovely views along the river and the university rowing houses were very spectacular. We moored along by the Isis pub and had 15 mins break where you could take a quick walk along to see Iffley lock. The whole cruise was 50mins long which was good, and lots to see along the way. 🙂

A lovely relaxing informative river cruise
Thoroughly enjoyed our river cruise with Captain Nick. It was a very scenic and entertaining time exploring the Thames at Oxford. Especially appreciated the small more intimate nature of the boat and Nick's well informed take on the area and it's personalities.

Nice way to start our day!
Was our first stop in Oxford.
Easy to find and can order a drink to take on the cruise. Lovely nice cruise along the river but it is mostly the university row houses you see and a lock and some boat houses. Would recommend but don't expect to see loads of the history and buildings of Oxford.

Messing about on the river....

Really lovely sailing along the river on our delightful boat. Our captain was full of fascinating facts and very entertaining. We enjoyed our little stop to admire Iffley Lock.. and bridge too. Easy to book and a warm welcome at the Folly Cafe.
