River Raft Tours

Swipe image above to see a 360 degree shot of the river.

Welcome to our high water winter trips! We usually run our 25ft scenic boat trips for all ages throughout the season but sometimes come up against higher water that prevents us from motoring the boats upstream. Now we can continue to run but this time on our customised 17ft raft. The trip runs on the same stretch of river but we steer the extra course through Jackfield rapids and then finish round the corner at the Half Moon Pub. Prices for these trips can be found on our Scenic Tours page (please note these bookings are subject to a minimum of £50).

For a more personal trip family and friends can book a 10ft mini-raft high water experience. A maximum of 4 people (plus your guide) will paddle fast moving currents, through the Jackfield rapids, finishing round the corner at the Half Moon Pub. (Subject to availability). These private guided boat tours cost £60 per trip.

Both trips run for the same length of time with 1 hour on the water. Both trips have a minimum age of 4 years due to us running a very easy class 2 rapid at Jackfield. At the end of the trip we shuttle you back up to where you are parked at the Wharfage car park.

River Raft Tours

Welcome to our full day trips! We run scenic boat trips for ages 12 and above on a 7.5 mile course on the River Severn for the months of April to June plus September. We meet at our Little Green Kiosk in the Wharfage car park at 9.45am and transport you to the starting point of our trip.  You will enjoy a fully guided trip down the River Severn, taking in the beautiful scenery, spending approximately 3-4 hours on the river.  At the end of our trip we enjoy a BBQ picnic before returning you to the Wharfage car park in Ironbridge.

River Raft Tours

This is full day trip where you will be on the water between 3-4 hours. There are no stops along the way, however, toilet facilities are available before we set off.  The trip has a minimum age of 12 years as we find children under this age may lack patience to be on a boat for so long.

Passengers are welcome to experience rowing the largest rafts in the U.K but in no way is it compulsory. We provide drinks along the way plus a choice of veggie or angus beef burgers at the end of the trip together with a selection of salad, side dishes and desserts plus hot and cold drinks. At the end of the day we will shuttle you back to the Wharfage car park in Ironbridge by minibus.

NOTE: Group full day trip dates are available on request but a minimum of 8 adults (maximum of 10 people) will need to be booked for a trip to go ahead. We do not supply booze cruises so please do not expect a pub crawl along the way. Anyone under the influence of alcohol before the trip will not be able to participate and there will be no refunds.

Trips can be organised on request for groups of up to 10. Please give as much notice as possible before requested trip date.
