About us

We make the Thames accessible

COVID-19 update: during the current difficult times, all activities on our boats are suspended. We really look forward to being back on the river later in the year once the government restrictions are lifted. We know that we will be able to enjoy special time on the river with our clients and supporters again, when the time is right. Being on the river brings positive mental health benefits and will help to alleviate the stress, anxiety and isolation that so many have been experiencing.  The boats are waiting patiently for us. In the meantime, keep safe and well.
From everyone at the River Thames Boat Project

We provide access to the River Thames for people of all ages, including those with a special need, disability or mental health condition.  We offer therapeutic cruises and deliver fun and dynamic educational and learning activities on the River Thames.

The charity was formed in 1988 and registered in 1989 and we have shown that enjoying and learning about the river on board our specially adapted and wheelchair-accessible boats, is a very special experience.  It brings relaxation, health and personal development benefits unique to the river setting – as shown by our many clients who rebook year after year.

Our boats are moored at Kingston-upon-Thames and we operate along the river between Windsor and Putney.

As well as our regular day and residential cruises and educational programmes, we help our clients plan bespoke cruises and activities specially suited to their group’s particular needs.  We are also proud to have a carbon neutral status.
