Which ever Bristol Packet vessel you choose you’ll always receive a historic and entertaining commentary to point out the interesting features and keep the passengers up to date with contemporary Bristol. You can also add a delicious home made west country cream tea to your cruise just for a bit of fun.


An exclusive charter of a Bristol Packet boat is a great way to entertain groups of 20 to 95 people, alternatively take a look at our public time table for small groups or individual tickets
