2016 Season

  • All trips are dependent on availability, weather and river conditions to ensure the safety of our passengers and volunteers.
  • The boats only operate within civil twilight hours for safety and insurance reasons.
  • Passenger numbers on all our boats are subject to load capacity.
  • The River Stour Trust operate the boat trips and are entirely separate to The Henny Swan who run the pub and restaurant. Therefore, payments to The Henny Swan are not related to the River Stour Trust boat trip. Boat fares are payable directly to the River Stour Trust.
