Cost of Hire For Our Boutique Boats

Clearly we are presently closed due to COVID-19 (please see our separate page of information on this subject).  However, if you would like to make a booking for later in the year, or next year, we would be very happy to hold it for you, with no deposit requested until we all understand better the way ahead.   

Holiday bookings usually start on a Monday for 7 nights or more.  Due to our COVID-19 plans and our new regime of allowing a week’s gap between bookings on Arthur Owl to ensure the safety of our guests and cleaning team, we are also offering longer holidays for less money.  Book one week and get a second week at half price.  Book two weeks at full price and get a third week for free.  If you require any other lengths of stay, either shorter or longer, please contact Cafwin Cruises to discuss your holiday needs and we will come to an agreement on price.  Arthur Owl’s pricing starts out from only £800 for one full week, this is inclusive of everything you need to have an amazing time drifting along watching the world go by.
