Annual Celebration Trips
Join us in celebration of the two most iconic dates in the calendar

Join us on your very own party trip with Hidden Depths Canal Cruises!

Enjoy a fun and relaxing trip down the Regent’s Canal with family and friends, and make your celebration a day to remember. Offering both party and themed annual celebration trips, we have something that will appeal to everyone – whatever the size of your group* and food, alcohol/drinks and music can be brought on board!

*We have a small boat which seats up to 12 and a larger one which seats up to 42

Our Route

Our trips are based in the King’s Cross, Islington and Camden areas**, which provide scenic routes of the Regent’s Canal and offers the opportunity to cruise through the 200yr old, mile-long Islington tunnel, one of the longest in Britain! You can also experience the ingenuity of canal locks, which date back to the Industrial Revolution and make it possible for water to travel uphill!

**Other routes are available but may incur an additional charge

Party Hire

Celebrate your special day in a different and unique way! Whether it’s a hen party, a birthday party, a children’s pirate party, a corporate team building event or a special anniversary, what better way to spend it than cruising down the canal in an open boat on a summer’s day!

If your party is an intimate group of 12 or less, Lapwing would be the vessel for you; it’s just £120 per hour* plus VAT, and food, alcohol/drinks and music can be brought on board.

If, however, your group consists of up to 42 people, then it would be our bigger boat, Freda, which is a Lapwing lookalike but longer! The cost is £230 per hour* plus VAT (based upon 42 people, only £6.57 per person), and again, you can bring along food, alcohol/drinks and music. Also, should we get the odd shower, worry not, we have covers which can be attached at a moment’s notice.

*Minimum 2hr booking period

Annual Celebration Trips


Why not book your own private party on the scariest night of the year, and bring along a few spirits of your own! The boats are gruesomely decorated, and will take you on a voyage of hell, through the pitch-black, mile-long Islington tunnel! Hire is as Party Hire (up to 12 and 42 people) and while fancy dress is not compulsory, it is strongly encouraged!


Book your own private Christmas Party with us at this most festive time of the year! The boats, bedecked with fairy lights and tinsel, will cruise along as you listen to your favourite carols or festive tunes (bring your own playlist to avoid our selection of carols!) Also bring along some festive cheer, nibbles and up to 12 or 42 of your favourite friends or colleagues! Hire is as Party Hire, and there is heating on the larger boat.
