EC Summer Boat Party
Saturday 11th August, 2018

Sorry, this adventure is now fully booked but you can still add yourself to the waiting list and be automatically notified if a place becomes available or you might be interested in our EC Christmas Party Weekend.

Relax and enjoy three hours of smooth sailing down the beautiful Avon river in Bristol and meet like-minded adventurers from our community at our ever-popular annual summer boat party.


Join us for a long summer Saturday evening enjoying a private river cruise, starting right in the centre of Bristol city and sailing through rural stretches of the Avon river taking in historic docklands, city sights and picturesque woodland.

At 6pm we'll all board the boat together, booked exclusively for us, and depart from the Watershed Pontoon at Bristol harbourside. For the next three hours you can relax with a drink from the onboard bar, take in the panoramic views from the boat deck and get to know other like-minded adventurers from the EC community. At the halfway point we'll turn around and make our way back to Bristol city centre to finish at 9pm. After that the night is yours - you can go for some dinner, another drink or dance the night away at one of the many restaurants and bars at Bristol's bustling harbourside. 

EC adventures are informal, friendly and great fun! They're made up of singles, couples and small sets of friends with ages typically ranging from mid 20s to mid 40s but anyone over 18 years old and young at heart is welcome. Whether it's your first time exploring the outdoors or you're an adventure professional, EC adventures are a great way to meet like-minded people in a safe, welcoming and fun environment.



Please meet at the Watershed Pontoon in Bristol (postcode BS1 5TX) at 5:45pm, ready for a prompt departure at 6pm. 

We'll alight at the same location at the end of the cruise, finishing around 9pm. From there you can just hop over to any one of the numerous bars and restaurants that Bristol has to offer. If you need some advice on where to go we can help!
