Nice little boat tour lasting just over 45 minutes, with some very informative commentary by the skipper about the river and local landmarks, both recent and history, injected with occasional splashes (pun intended) of humour throughout which worked well. It's a little overpriced, and the drinks on board are more or less extortionately priced, but that's to be expected on... More

An excellent introduction to the town. Very helpful and informative commentary. We went on a cold morning and blankets were provided. Hot refreshments were available. Reasonable pricing and overall a worthwhile experience.

The sabrina boat trip is a really good little tour of the river Severn that go's round Shrewsbury. It's very picturesque and very informative, the boat itself was very clean and tidy . There's a bar that serves hot and cold drinks and food. I would recommend this.

Went on the Sabrina boat trip on the Severn in Shrewsbury, most enjoyable cruise. reasonable price, lovely pot of tea warmed us up as it was a very cold morning. The skipper and crew were very helpful and informative. Commentary was excellent. Well worth a visit.

Residents of Shrewsbury we had taken the Sabrina boat for granted. Then on impulse we decide to give it a go one sunny afternoon. Very good value for money too. Pleasant little trip up the river and back and some good informative commentary.

Paying £8 per adult for a 45 minute trip on the Severn is value for money. The commentary by Geoff the skipper for our trip was enlightening, humorous and educational. The crew were pleasant and welcoming

A great way to spend a morning and to see and learn about Shrewsbury. Coffee and drinks are served on board and you are treated to an informative and amusing commentary by Ian. Great.
