Book a River Cruise

Experience the Best of the River Bann onboard the classic harbour launch M.V. Kingfisher.

Sit back, relax and unwind.

Enjoy unique land and water-based heritage journey across diverse timelines on this boating experience. This fully guided new experience includes a seated river trip on the classic boat M.V. Kingfisher, a 1-hour shore stop walk at Mountsandel State Care heritage site and complimentary refreshments onboard.

Outside our usual scheduled boat experiences, M.V. Kingfisher is available for private charters.  Each charter is designed to your specific requirements, a truly unique way to to celebrate a special occasion: birthday, graduation, anniversary, wedding or engagement party, team building event or simply an amazing day out with family and friends.

Book an evening cruise, experience the River Bann as it slowly winds down, sit back and relax in comfort as the evening draws in.
