About Us

A boating holiday with Kris Cruisers really is a holiday with a difference. Starting from our marina base at Datchet you can set off to cruise the River Thames, one of the most beautiful waterways In Europe. Meander up or downstream wherever the mood takes you enjoying the change of pace as you go. Moor up at Windsor, Henley, Oxford and many other wonderful towns and villages along the river. You can even take the family to some famous attractions close to the river such as Legoland and Thorpe Park. Our superb fleet of self-drive motor cruisers are available from as little as a short break to one week or longer.

No previous boating experience is necessary. Each year we have customers that have never taken a boating holiday before, but a modern river cruiser is easy to drive and mastering the controls is quickly learned. Tuition will be given on boat handling and safety by one of our instructors who all hold the RYA Inland Waters Helmsman Certificate.

We have one of the largest fleets of self drive day boats to hire on the River Thames. With 24 day boats seating from 2 to 12 people, they can be hired from as little as 2 hours to a full day. To guarantee your chosen boat and date, it’s always best to book in advance.
