My passion for boats started on the Adriatic Sea when I was a teenager. Since, I have sailed extensively in Italy, Croatia, The Solent and I have also completed the crossing of the Tasman Sea between Sydney and New Zealand. I have lived in London for over 20 years and the Thames is for me a natural connection to the sea. Over the years I have explored every corner of it and I have come to appreciate and love all the different aspects this river has to offer. This passion for boats, sea and the Thames is at the heart of my Experience. I do hope that with taking part in my experience you too will discover an aspect of this river that will catch your imagination and encourage you to return for more.

Luigi has a very beautiful boat, spotlessly clean The stretch of the river we travelled was also extremely beautiful and we had a very relaxing, stress free and enjoyable day. Thank you Luigi.

Luxurious and comfortable boat, on a gorgeous stretch of water, with a lovely host. We couldn’t have asked for a more relaxing and enjoyable day for the 4 of us and would highly recommend.

Luigi hosted the perfect day in blazing hot sun on his wonderful boat. We swam, we kayaked, we sunbathed, we ate, we drank, and all on a wonderful stretch of river. It felt like about three days, rather than one (in a good way) and our young daughters didn't ask to watch TV even once...! Highly recommended.

The perfect way to see this beautiful part of the Thames. A great introduction to the relaxation and locks for our teenagers. Luigi has just the right balance of safety and knowledge while allowing you to feel comfortable and assist.

Luigi is an amazing host. He went out of his way to make our boat trip special. We had a fantastic lunch and we’re able to hang out on top of the boat for a better view of the scenery. I was even able to operate one of the locks.
