Pulteney Cruisers

Welcome to Pulteney Cruisers

Welcome to Pulteney Cruisers, the longest established boat tour operator in Bath. We have been running boat trips from Pulteney weir in the centre of Bath for over 50 years. Our boats each seat 80 people & have a cafe & toilet on board.  There is a sundeck or heated cabin depending on the weather.

We offer a scenic hour’s cruise up the River Avon to the village of Bathampton on our twin decked boats. The trip passes under the historic Pulteney Bridge & out into the beautiful Avon valley. There is an abundance of wildlife to see on the river including swans, herons, kingfishers & for the lucky few, otters!

On the way upstream the crew serve hot & cold drinks from the galley & on the return journey of each cruise there is a fascinating live commentary on the history, architecture & points of interest on the Avon.

It is possible to get off at Bathampton for lunch or sightseeing, just buy a one way ticket on the boat you board. You can walk back or catch a later boat, pay on board for the return.
