Public Trips

During 2021 it is intended, subject to Covid 19 restrictions, that 'Alaska' will be running public trips at the Thames Traditional Boat Festival at Henley over the August Bank Holiday weekend (27th, 28th, 29th and 30th July) . Unfortunately, due to protracted refit and reactivation of the vessel after Covid enforced lay up, we will not be able to undertake any public trips over the late May Bank Holiday weekend as we have in previous years. We will endeavour to run other public trip days during the season as we know so many of you have missed us greatly.

Thames Steamers would like to thank all of the many hundreds of you that came on a trip during 2019 and we hope to see you again in 2021.

If you are organising a riverside event, 'Alaska' can provide a major attraction, running public trips for those attending. Please contact us for further details.

We quite often have places available on positioning trips when ‘Alaska’ is sailing to or from events and charter jobs away from our base, so watch out on Twitter and Facebook for details. If you ‘Follow’ us on Twitter or ‘Like’ us on Facebook you will receive alerts of upcoming events and trip opportunities. The Twitter and Facebook buttons on the menu bar will take you directly to our pages.
