Welcome Aboard The Southern Comfort
Join our crew for a memorable river experience
The Southern Comfort is a double-deck paddle boat purpose built for the Broads with a capacity of 100 passengers for public trips or private hire. Our boat is a luxury river cruiser which runs regular trips from the beautiful village of Horning, along the River Bure through the village and out to Ranworth Broad and back, passing lovely old thatched houses, windmills and Norfolk reed beds. Throughout the trip there is an excellent commentary and continual pointing out of all the water birds around at the time. There is the ever present bustle of river traffic with cruisers, yachts and the occasional wherry.
1½ hour and 2 hour trips
Stunning views from upper deck
Plush lounge on lower deck with fully stocked bar
Snacks, souvenirs and freshly made tea and coffee available
Group discounts offered
Whatever the celebration i.e. Wedding Reception, Office Function, Birthday Party or Social Club outing, Southern Comfort is an excellent venue.
Hire charges are reasonable and while we offer a choice of menu and music, the hirer may provide their own if they wish. Our fully licenced bar has a wide range of beers, wines and spirits and tea and coffee are always available.
