Boats in Bath

I see there are 2 boat operators from Bath to Bathampton: Pulteney Princess and Pulteney Cruises. Does anyone know the difference and which is the best to take? Thank you.

I am not familiar with those companies, but I can recommend the Lady Lena cruises. Lady Lena is a a Victorian era electric launch, beautifully restored, and is operated by a local couple, Jenks and Helen, from Bath. We did a cruise on the Kennet and Avon canal and it was a highlight of our trip. The electric motor makes for a quiet, fume-free ride. Jenks and Helen were wonderful hosts and we learned a lot of interesting canal history from them. They even gave us one of Helen's lovely watercolors of their historic boat. Check it out at
