Birthday Punting Information

Our 50 minute birthday punting tours are bookable in advance and will be waiting for you at your chosen time.

Your cake will have approximately a 9 inch radius – lots to go around! If you would like to organise a larger cake, please get in touch with us on 01223 322200 and we’ll happily pull some strings to ensure that everyone gets a slice! 

Check in with our team at our Jesus Green Moorings just 2 minutes along the boardwalk from the Quayside. For last minute bookings, please contact our Bookings Team on 01223 322200.

You’re very welcome to bring along additional picnics, nibbles and drinks on our birthday punting tours. You can also take your dog with you for the experience and best of all there’s no extra charge for your best friend!

Both our boats and our employees will be dressed for the weather on the day. If it’s sunny, your guide will be wearing a waistcoat. Alternatively, at colder times of the year, your guide will wear a professional coat and your boat will be equipped with umbrellas.

What to do if you’re running late? Your private booking will be held for you for 10 minutes, after this point it wouldn’t be possible to go on the tour as this would mean missing our later bookings. Please call us the moment you know of any delays to your schedule and we’ll try to organise things to accommodate you.

Happy Birthday!
