Tips for booking

Please be advised that this event books up extremely quickly!
To speed up the booking process please have a few dates in mind, along with the names and ages of the children and the number of adults attending.

On the day of the trip

Please ensure that you arrive 10 minutes before the boat is due to depart, unfortunately due to the nature of the event the boat cannot wait for late arrivals.

Wear suitable clothing and footwear. Please bring a camera - Father Christmas loves to have his photo taken. For the evening trips we will provide torches for the children (and some of the adults).
