We need your help!

We are hoping to be able to offer public trips once again from the second half of May, but this will depend on government guidance at the time.

Most of our income comes from providing these public trips, but we have not been able run these for most of the past year. However, we still have bills to pay – insurance, licence, safety inspections, etc, even when there is no money coming in!

You can help to keep Still Waters afloat so that we will still be here in the future to offer trips to the public, schools, disadvantaged groups, etc.

We now have a GoFundMe page for anyone who would like to help to keep us us going until we can generate our regular income once again. Please follow this link if you wish to make a donation. Many thanks.

Please help to keep us afloat!

Health & Hygiene
Weโ€™ve implemented a lot of changes, most notably we will be operating at a reduced capacity, were we can ensure we are following social distancing guidelines at all times,ย we have access to the LATEST DEFRA & MCA approved guidelines.ย 

1) We will be conducting disinfection of all touchpoints including handrails, door handles,  and seats, before, and after each trip. 

2)  We have hand sanitiser dispensers at the entrance to the  boat for our passengers to use as they board and disembark. 

3)  At this moment in time, Government advice does not require you to wear a face mask whilst travelling with us but please feel free to do so. 

4) There are currently no toilet facilities available on board the boat or at Portland Basin Museum.

We thank you in advance for your continued cooperation and support.
