Day and residential cruises

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, special needs children, 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 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 carers or companion and include a social lunch in the saloon.
