Frequently asked questions

  • Can I bring my dog?

    Well-behaved dogs are very welcome to visit the ship on the lower decks and join us on harbour trips. Please can you leave your dogs at home for Fish and Chip trips and Cream Tea trips.

  • What should I wear?

    The Matthew is an open, uncovered boat so please dress according to the weather. If you are joining us for a trip or a private hire event then please note you will be more exposed to the weather when out on the water – it can feel slightly colder than it does on the quayside especially if windy, and more exposed to the sun if fine. We recommend you consider bringing an extra layer, waterproofs or sun protection. In the event of rain we have large umbrellas that you can use.

  • I haven't received a ticket, will I be able to come on my trip?

    Don't worry! We do not operate paper tickets on The Matthew - instead we will generate a passenger list for each trip. You should, however, receive an email with your booking confirmation. If this doesn't arrive in your inbox within a few hours of booking, check your spam folder. If it isn't there please get in touch by email or telephone and we will be able to confirm your booking and that you are on the passenger list.
