Gin and Jazz Evening Cruise - £49 per person

Step back in time to a bygone era as the sounds of 1930s jazz fill the cockpit on this evening cruise.

Perfect to celebrate a birthday, anniversary or just to enjoy a special night out this cruise up the River Hamble is the ideal way to start your evening in style.

To ensure you are able to revel in the timeless class of Betsie Jane we have sourced the very finest drinks to accompany your River Cruise. As the traditional drink of sailors, we serve Wight Mermaids Gin accompanied by the delightful botanic tastes of the finest Fever Tree tonic. Distilled on the Isle of Wight, Mermaids Gin uses the very best local ingredients from locations such as Steephill Cove and accompanies Betsie Jane's rich Isle of Wight history perfectly.

If you fancy a little something to warm your cockles you will also have the option to sample during the evening the potent Moonshine, also distilled on the Isle of Wight. We also stock the Rock Sea Vodka from the Isle of Wight distillery, a selection of a locally brewed real ales and a range of specially selected alcohol free drinks.
