are not suitable for pregnant women and people who have spinal / back conditions
and people who have conditions such as Osteoporosis.
Voyages are also not suitable for people who cannot “Brace” themselves against the
motion of the sea.

The pictures above give an example of our boarding process.
The Waterfront Retail area has free public parking with disabled bays approximately
5 minutes’ walk from our quay side.
Boarding Our Boat
The promenade along the quay side has a wheelchair access ramp, however to get in
and out of our boat requires passengers to transfer out of a wheelchair and step
onto the pontoon and then onto the boat’s tubes which may not always be stable. Once
onboard, our boat passengers will need to step down off the back seat onto the deck.
This steep step down is approximately 45 cm (18 inches).
Once on board, you will be seated on bench seats with a hand rail in front of you.
All seats (except the front one) also have foot holds. Throughout your entire voyage
(for your personal safety) you must remain seated.
Our crew will always assist everyone to safely get on and off our vessel. If you
feel that there may be a problem for you or one of your party please contact us in
advance, by phoning our booking office (Tel : 01293 888780)
Our voyages include live commentaries, if you need to lip read, please advise our
staff on the day.
Our vessel does not have any toilet facilities, however there are public toilets
in the Waterfront Retail complex that have disabled access.
Food and Drink
We do not have any food or drink facilities onboard, however, there are many restaurants
and cafes in the Waterfront Retail complex. Food is not allowed on board. For safety,
drinks must be in plastic packaging.
There is a public bus route to the Crumbles shopping centre which is a 10 minute
walk from our quay side. See our Directions page for details.
