Cruising aboard Betsie Jane transports you back to the bygone era of the 1930s and whilst relaxing in her safe and comfortable cockpit, you will feel truly special, as the beautiful lines of this unique and historic vessel turn heads wherever she travels.
There is plenty to see as we gently meander up the majestic River Hamble through the 1000s of yachts moored on this River, which is also a hive of other water craft of all shapes and sizes. Nestled among the boats, the banks of this River are also the home to a wide variety of marine wildlife, with the River often described as a birdwatchers paradise.
Choose from the Breakfast Cruise, Afternoon Cake Cruise or the Gin & Jazz evening cruise.
