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.

Contacted Captain Chrissy as we were spending a weekend in Lincoln and always love a boat trip, right from the start she was very accommodating and was happy to pick us up from the Pyewipe Inn where we were staying. She took us in to Lincoln in the morning and we arranged the trip back for later in the afternoon, we then asked her to extend the trip by taking us up to Stamp lock which was no problem, we had a lovely cream tea with a pot of proper tea which came from her other boat, the cafe boat Moonraker which is moored in the centre of Lincoln.
Oliver is a lovely quirky boat and we had a great trip.
Thanks Chrissy

18th December was a cold day in Lincoln but the 3 of us were on a tight schedule as we have only 3 days in Lincoln. We were the only passengers at noon and the Brayford Pool had ice layers. Despite the cold, the crew were very warm in welcoming us. There was hot chocolate with mince pies. The trip was informative and we got to know the history of the canals and the buildings lining it. The boat though small was sailing smoothly and it was a calming and tranquillising ride all the way.
