Find piers and transport links for your events
We are able to book many different piers on the River Thames (see below for full list), they are however subject to availability. We offer use of Tower Pier and London Eye/Waterloo Pier for embarkation & disembarkation free of charge on vessels except Sailing Barge Will. It should be noted that clients are only allowed 15 minutes to embark and disembark guests.
Other piers can be booked for you subject to availability at additional cost (generally £100 + VAT for William B, and Tideway, and £105 + VAT for Dutch Master per 15 minute stop). Additional calls into piers during your cruise will incur the same charges (£100 + VAT for William B and Tideway and £105 + VAT for Dutch Master per 15 minute stop). Any pier stops required must be confirmed with the office well in advance of the day of the function to ensure pier space availability. As standard, Sailing Barge Will has pier costs of £275 + VAT in addition to the charter fee but this depends on the piers used and can vary.
If additional time at the pier is required (for example to load on band equipment, decorate the boat or perhaps load on own cold catering) this can be arranged but will be chargeable dependant on the length of time & pier required, please check with the office.
Our largest cruiser The Dutch Master embarks & disembarks at either Tower Pier or St Katherine’s due to her size. For this reason she mainly cruises east on the Thames, but can cruise west as far as Blackfriars Bridge IF TIDAL CONDITIONS PERMIT. Please check tides with the office prior to booking this boat if you specifically want to cruise west to avoid disappointment. Sailing Barge Will can only go east of London Bridge, likewise this is because of her height.
All clients wishing to use any pier upriver past Westminster Bridge or downriver past (and including) Canary Wharf pier, will be charged an extra 1 hour by the relevant charter rate.
