Large replica 19th century paddle steamer

The New Orleans Paddle Steamer Boat is one of the largest boats on the River Thames available for Private Hire, creating an atmosphere of a ship rather than a boat. Built in 1968, she has recently been refurbished to a very high standard.

The New Orleans Paddle Steamer Boat can accommodate events for 125 guests. This is an ideal boat for Corporate Dinners in London, Evening Venues to entertain clients after a Conference, Networking, Meetings, London Weddings and Christmas Office Parties.

Sailing East from the Tower of London your guests will be captivated as Tower Bridge is raised especially for you to pass before cruising down to Canary Wharf, Greenwich, the O2 and the Thames Barrier.

Cruises are 3 – 4 hours allowing you to pass the best sights that Central London has to offer. Each Private Cruise is tailor-made to your requirements, please contact our specialist Thames Boat Hire Team today who will put a bespoke quote together for you.
