Overview

We are one of the longest operating pleasure boat companies on the creeks off the River Gambia and we invented the very popular 'Lazy Day' concept. We offer the highest standards of service, quality and safety and continue to receive high levels of approval from our direct customers and from our international and local tour operations partners. We strive to keep our service ahead of the competition following in our wake and are proud to introduce for the 2017-2018 season, one brand new purpose-built boat (and another one to come later that season). We believe our standards are second to none and our trips are the most professional and enjoyable you will find here at Denton Bridge.

Picked up at the hotel on time. The boat has a certain charm, but the upper structure was so lopsided you could get seasick on a river. The engine was very loud and the gasoil fumes nauseating. The lunch was cooked on board, and passable,...More
