Boat Hire with Crew

LUCS has three boats that can be hired with a qualified driver for private hire parties:

  • Victoria – An open boat for up to 12 people
  • One of our 40 seater boats : Saint Magdalene or Saint Michael,  closed and heated boats for up to 40 people (36 if intending to provide catering)

Select your own route, options include:

  • Avon Aqueduct (2.5 hours)
  • Falkirk Wheel (9 hours)
  • Water taxi to Park Bistro or Bridge 49 where the boat will wait whilst you have your meal

To book a Boat with Crew please use the LUCS Booking System, which shows when a 40-seater boat and Victoria are available for hire and enables you to make a booking and to pay on-line by PayPal, credit card or debit card.  Alternative payment methods are payment by cheque or by prepaid LUCS Gift Voucher.  In these cases the booking will be provisional until confirmed by LUCS.

Contact our Booking Secretary at to discuss your options and arrange a cruise that best suits the needs of your party. Please note that hire requests at less than 10 days notice may not be possible.
