Accessing the Thames day cruises are for groups, residential homes and for community support organisations helping older people or people of any age with a disability or mental health issues including: ex-servicemen, dementia clients, children with special needs, children with cancer, stroke survivors, vision impaired, hearing impaired and many more.
These cruises are for small groups, maximum 12 passengers (including carers or companions). These offer a supportive, protective and relaxing environment for our clients distinguishing us from commercial boat operators.
The cruises are on our new custom-built cruise boat Thames Discoverer or our specially adapted barge Thames Venturer, operated by a caring professional skipper and trained volunteer crew. On board, clients have a degree of mobility and camaraderie rarely found in other leisure activities.
Should your group require a shorter cruising day, we can do half days depending on availability.
Linking People Afloat cruises are day cruises for individuals, often isolated or not supported by a group, to come by themselves or with a carer or companion and include a social lunch in the saloon.
