About us

Crown River Cruises offers luxurious cruises supplying meals and entertainment. Our Thames river cruise vessels are frequently used to host functions such as wedding receptions, birthdays, business parties or any other special occasions where food, entertainment and a bar can be provided.

Our history

We started as a small, family-run charter-based company, established in 1986, which began with one vessel and later purchased the Sarpedon, Salient, Sapele and Sarah Kathleen. In 1992 we began scheduled services to and from Westminster to Tower Bridge. This became very successful and led to the expansion of Crown River Cruises, as in 2002 we introduced a new vessel, The Sarpedon.

Our events

The Salient has been of service to the London Mayor, along with many celebrities, and is a prestigious part of Crown River Cruises’ history. We are also very privileged to carry the Oxford boat race supporters to the race venue every year.

The Sarah Kathleen is a single-deck vessel which mainly functions for touring, and has also been used for television filming due to its suitably large deck.
