Bath

For an experience to remember go aboard the “Silver Salmon” for your Bath river cruise on the river Avon.

Enjoy a luxury river cruise and see the beauty of the historical city of Bath and the relaxing scenery of the countryside and wildlife down river.

The river vessel is fully equipped for safety and comfort and the moorings are very conveniently situated close to Avon Street car park, the Riverside coach park and Bath Spa station.

Every booking is tailored for your personal requirements and Bath cruises can be arranged for any duration.

Typically, a Bath river cruise of up to 2 hours takes in the sights of the city where we sail right into the weir at Pulteney bridge and see a variety of wildlife on the outskirts of the city. 3 hours takes us downriver through the lock at Weston island, as far as Newbridge and back, and 4 hours allows us time to go further downriver towards Saltford.
