    Expected update:
    Due to Corona Virus Monarch will not be running for the forseeable future.
    ORCA, our sister company Wareham River Cruises, will still run from the 1st of April unless Government advice changes.

    Latest update:
    Due to the small size of Monarch, coupled with government social distancing rules and given that passengers will be with at least one other person who is not a member of their immediate household, it has been decided that it is not possible or safe to run trips until at least the end of June.
    We will continue to monitor the government guidelines and if distancing rules are relaxed, hopefully we will be back at the start of July.

    Latest News:
    We are not currently operating (not even from 4th July) as government guidelines updated on the 11th June state: "Tourist and trip boat operators must remain closed. Tourist and trip boats will reopen when restrictions on ticketed leisure activities are lifted."
    Despite the relaxing of lock down from the 4th July the above advice has not been changed so sadly we will not be able to start unless the above advice is changed.
    We assume (for want of any clear advice) that we have been put in the same category as theatres and sports events hence why our industry has been told we cannot reopen.
    We will be limited to max 5 passengers per trip if we can run.
