Have to say a big thank you to Chrissy and Adrian for giving me a fun (55th) birthday trip up the canal to the Pyewipe Inn and back. Birthday banners, a birthday cake with candle, tea, scones, party poppers all made it really special......and there were only the 2 of us!

Highly recommend for a great alternative to the more "corporate" and mainstream trips on offer. Oliver Boat Trips are to be commended for not taking themselves too seriously and for giving a memorable "experience" as well as really knowledgeable team who are passionate about the history of this fascinating stretch of waterway.

And all at an absolutely ridiculously low price.

Go on, treat yourselves, suspend your disbelief and go with it :)

We have just got back from a wonderful boat trip to the Pyewipe from the Brayford courtesy of Olivers boat. The 4 of us absolutely loved it thank you and we look forward to booking for a fish and chips boat trip later on. Our son loved searching for all the Easter eggs and the commentary from the Captain was both interesting and informative, telling us all about the history of the waterway and local knowledge about Lincoln. Lovely tea and cakes was provided and we will be recommending to all our family and friends. Again thank you for making our Easter Sunday such fun ⚓️

We have been on several boat trips on Oliver and always have a good time. Captain Chrissie is always very welcoming and does her best to make sure we have a lovely trip. The bunch of daffodils for each mother on board for Mother’s Day (there were 3 of us as we went with lots of family) were a lovely gesture. Prices are very reasonable. We will be booking again soon for the Easter egg hunt.

Fab day had for my little boys 6th birthday.
After a lovely trip to the Pyewipe earlier on in the year we found out that they did birthday parties on board, as my little boys name is Oliver it seemed the perfect birthday treat for him & his 9 friends so we booked it.
On the day captain Chrissy was the perfect host, in fact she out did herself. She organised the whole event from decking out the boat in a pirate theme, supplying food boxes, party games a nautical treasure hunt & birthday cake, she even gave Oliver a birthday present & supplied the waiting parents with a free tea/coffee voucher for her other boat moored up river. Unfortunately the snowy weather was against us but it didn't spoil the event & all the kids loved it.
I can't recommend Oliver boat tours enough & thank you so much to captain Chrissy for all her hard work, we'll certainly be seeing her again in the summer for fish & chips on board Oliver.

Thank Nigel H
