Covid-19 – Limited 2021 Trips

Well, its nearly a year closed. Who would have thought?!

We were able to run a few scenic trips after March 2020, but nothing compered to what we wanted to. The good new is the Government has set out a timeline of opening, and if all goes to plan, we might be able to open in May for limited scenic trips, and then fully open from June 21st for our main party nights.

We will continue to abide by the Government rules. We ask customers to support their local businesses were they can, and when this is over, join us for the parties we know you want and need.
Please click here to keep an eye on our Facebook page for any updates regarding reopening.


If you have booked one of our scenic daytime trips then all vouchers sold by Boatel will be honoured for a further 12 months from their expiry date. All missed booking from 2020 can contact us to arrange a new date and get the party going again!
