Stag / Hen
This page is for the eyes of the Best man or Bridesmaid!
Having been tasked with organising the all-important stag or hen do, you have probably started researching some of the many options available. Clay pigeon shooting, paint balling and quad bikes are all popular activities, but they all have common drawbacks. You and your friends will spend several hours driving to a venue in the middle of nowhere, only to wait in a queue for hours while other stag and hen parties participate, before getting to enjoy your twenty minutes of fun!
Our stag and hen events are very different. Firstly, we will only ever entertain one party per-boat, each morning or afternoon. Secondly, if you arrive on time, we can guarantee that there will be no queue. Thirdly, we can assure you that your stag/hen experience will last a lot longer than those of our rival activities. Lastly, we're based a stone's throw away from Southampton City Centre, a popular stag / hen party destination. Your party can check into your nearby hotel before the activity begins and head straight into town afterwards...no time wasted on travel!
We offer three standard stag and hen packages or can put together something more bespoke together for you, if you wish. Please see below for details of the three standard packages we offer.
Typically, your event will run from Southampton and will begin either on a Saturday morning or after lunch (we are however open 7 days a week). Our Skipper will meet you before introducing the party to your boat and delivering a short safety briefing. Breakfast, lunch or snacks can be provided during the day for bespoke packages and lunch is included onboard with the full day yachting experience.
HALF DAY YACHTING EXPERIENCE - Minimum group of 6
Slip the lines, hoist the sails and take turns in steering one of our yachts. Groups of 12 or more will be divided across two or more yachts. Sessions run from 1000 until 1300 and from 1400 until 1700.
FULL DAY YACHTING EXPERIENCE - Minimum group of 6
While the half day experience gives you a taster of what it's like to sail a yacht, the full day allows you to sail further and learn more about sailing. Lunch is included onboard. The day usually runs from 1000 until 1700, although we can adapt this to suit you.
HALF DAY RIB RIDE - Minimum group of 7
RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boat) rides are a popular way to spend a few sociable hours. As all of our skippers are fully qualified Powerboat Instructors, we are one of the few operators who can allow you to drive the RIB yourselves. Wave jumping over the ferry wakes in the Solent tends to be the highlight of the day. This experience won't be a gentle ride, so is not not for those who have a previous or existing back or neck condition. Sessions usually run from 1000 until 1230 and from 1330 until 1600.
Of course the stag / hen party won't end there! Once your water experience with us is over and you have returned to our training centre, you will be ideally placed to continue the party with a night out in Southampton or Bournemouth (which is only about an hour's drive away).
