Public & Themed Trips

We are all looking forward to getting out on the water as soon as possible, but the uncertainty of prevailing Covid restrictions in the months to come means we are unable to publish, with any confidence, a future schedule of Public and Themed trips. Based on our experiences last year, we anticipate that early trips will be confined to small party sizes to comply with legal restrictions. A continuing National Lockdown will of course prevent any trips.

John Pinkerton at Odiham:
We intend to offer public trips at Easter, on Sunday and Monday afternoons, and commence with themed trips in May – all subject to prevailing Government restrictions.

Our Booking system will show the dates for which we can provide 5 tables, socially spaced. Each booking will be for one table only.
Multiple tables from a group or friends is not allowed.
Each table will have a maximum number of passengers to comply with anticipated legislation, updated as information is published.

When booking, please note that each table must be for a single family bubble. All passengers must remain seated, and maintain social spacing to other tables. Bar service will be to the table, and payment made by card.

We wish to assure all passengers that for their safety, boats will be cleansed between each trip, hand sanitiser will be available, and the crew will take all recommended precautions to prevent spread of Covid.

Passengers will be required to complete a Covid declaration before boarding. If unwell, they are requested not travel.

As restrictions are lifted, we will publish more trips, but here is a taster:

21st May, 2nd June & 7th July afternoon: Cream Tea Themed Trip.
China service with piano music accompaniment.

18th June afternoon: Grand Cafe Themed Trip.
Prosecco, fine food and live pianist.

25th June: Spanish Tapas & Wine evening.

16th July evening: Music & Ale Themed Trip

20th July: Ramble & Ploughman’s Lunch.
Choice of walk from Odiham to Barley Mow for lunch, return by boat;
Or Boat to Barley Mow for lunch, and walk back.

Kitty at Woking
Due to the size of the boat, passengers are unable to maintain social distance, so each trip will consist of a single family bubble. Trips will be available from 1st May.

Charters are available for both boats with the same restrictions. Please contact the Booking Team to discuss your requirements.
