...don't miss the boat. They have departure times listed on a billboard. Good location, short cruise, no bad seats. Saw a lot of the area you can't see by walking.

“unforseen circumstances”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

having read the mostly positive reviews we decided to give this a go on Thurs 22nd May. first trip of the day was due to be at 11am and we were there in plenty of time. after hanging around for ages, mostly just looking at the boat moored across the marina we made the assumption that perhaps the previous day's rainfall was the 'unforeseen circumstance' that meant the trip wasn't running, despite a subsequent (unanswered) phone call the boat appeared moored up most of the day so this review isn't really of the boat trip more of the really unhelpful and unattended Brayford Belle signage

“Simple out and back trip but from somewhere to nowhere”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

Took this trip out from Brayford Wharf, you quickly leave the Wharf behind and potter down the canal/River Witham. I found the trip quite boring, past student halls, no wildlife and not much commentary. For £6.50 it's okay if you have an hour spare, but if not, just chill at Brayford instead.

“Pleasant way to spend an hour”
Reviewed 4 May 2014 via mobile

Friendly and helpful crew made for a pleasant hour on the canal. Not very much of interest in May but were assured that there was plenty of wildlife to be seen. The journey was made much more interesting once the boat horn had been sounded with an old man hurling abuse at the boat saying it was a b#$^#@ nuisance followed by shouts from the other side of the canal in student accomodation and three lads bared their backside and wafted their genitalia at us. Made the £6.50 worthwhile.
