Bath: Sightseeing Boat Cruise with Prosecco

1. Bath: Sightseeing Boat Cruise with Prosecco

See the highlights of Bath from the water on a shared or private cruise on a restored 1960s cruiser. Choose the standard option to enjoy two glasses of Prosecco as you lounge in the sun or by the coal fire. Celebrate your party or get-together with the bottomless Prosecco and gin tasting cruise options. On sunny days, enjoy an open cockpit roof on the boat, or stay cozy and warm with a real coal fire on cooler days. As you enjoy your trip onboard an authentic, restored 1960s small cruiser, your skipper will point out the key attractions.  See the entrance to the Kennet and Avon Canal, which links London with the Bristol Channel, and cruise under North Parade Bridge.  Look out for nesting peregrine falcons at the 19th-century St. John’s Church, and see Pulteney Bridge, the rushing weir, and the city center architecture, including the 17th-century Bath Abbey. For standard private and shared tour options, enjoy your view with two glasses of Prosecco while you pass under Halfpenny Bridge and see the location where the old wharves used to stand, the central point of Bath’s trading links with Bristol since the 18th century. Private Bottomless Prosecco Cruise For groups, parties, and other celebrations, pump up the part with the private bottomless Prosecco cruise option. Keep the prosecco flowing as you keep the party going. Enjoy access to the onboard music system to play all your favorite tunes. Private Gin Tasting Cruise Alternatively, sip a G&T with friends with the private gin tasting cruise option. Cranking up the music of your choice and sip on signature boat cocktails. Sit back as your guides talk you through three spirit samples from the Gin collection, all before raising a toast with your favorite gin and mixer.
