Time to start thinking about a Christmas Party

With Christmas only 10 weeks away and this beautiful summer weather well and truly here, it’s time to start thinking about a Christmas Party! Why not bring your crew to celebrate with our crew, and enjoy a day out on Derwent Hunter for your Christmas Party this year?

We can take a fair sized group for a private charter, but if you are only a small group, we invite you to join us one one of your regular scheduled departures. Christmassy (or pirate) dress ups highly encouraged!

Meet the amazing crew of the Derwent Hunter

At Tallship Adventures, our people are so important to us. It’s been said that once you’ve worked on the Derwent Hunter, she becomes a part of you, but each of our crew becomes a part of our family too!

Whether crew members come to us with years of tallship experience, nothing but a bucketload of enthusiasm and a great attitude, or actually happen to be a member of the family (Hi Ena!) they all leave a little piece of themselves with the ship, adding to her rich, 70 year long history.

Our crew go above and beyond to make sure our customers have the most amazing trip on our beautiful tallship. Our reviews are testament to that…
