The Cambridge Punt Company have just 3 boats left for the best night of punting on the River Cam – the St John’s College May Ball fireworks on Tuesday 19th June. At just £200 per boat (with space for up to 12 people on each boat), you won’t get a better seat or price for the most exciting show of the year. Watch the skies sizzle above the city and feel the buzz electrifying the Backs.
You get an extra-special, extended experience with The Cambridge Punt Company for the May Ball fireworks – around three hours on the water in your private boat. We’ll set off at 8.30pm – our chauffeurs will take you to a prime spot on the river, in front of the spectacular riverside façade of St John’s College. Punting on the River Cam, we’ll entertain you with a few Cambridge tales – and as much (or as little!) St John’s College history as you like. We’ll certainly help you pop open your champagne and pour a glass or three on board. Then we’ll wait for the main event – around 10.30pm – the extravagant fireworks display. St John’s is one the wealthiest Cambridge colleges – so we know it will be as big and bold as ever.
To reserve your boat, visit our May Ball fireworks punting booking page. For queries or special requests – including booking drinks or picnics to have on board – please contact Jo at The Cambridge Punt Company: email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07943 820 437.

We promise to make your experience punting on the River Cam very memorable and personal and fun. Recent 5 star Trip Advisor reviewers include:
Punting on the River Cam – Steve, Welwyn
“Our trip on the River Cam to see the University Backs was very enjoyable, taking in some sights only seen from the river. It was made more interesting by Will’s commentary, who did the job very well. I would recommend this trip to anyone who hasn’t been.”
A must do when in Cambridge – Stephanie, Nuneaton
“Surpassed our expectations – our guide told us so many interesting and funny stories about the history of the city and university, as well as the pranks students have played over the years. Beautiful buildings to look at too. Would definitely recommend.”
Great tour! – Papyas, Washington DC
“This was definitely a must for a quick visit to Cambridge. Luckily I stumbled upon Cambridge Punt Company – competitively priced, great customer service and our guide Paul was outstanding. He had great stories and information, a unique perspective on the university, and answered all our questions thoughtfully and in good humor. Thanks to Paul, this was the highlight of my trip to Cambridge!”
Uni experience – Leah
“Our university tutor decided to organise a punting event as part of our welcome week. I was very intrigued. The guide we had was lovely and got everyone involved with the tour, which was packed with information. The entire tour was great, full of beautiful scenery and culture. Definitely worth visiting in Cambridge.”
Great guide, solid company – Freutmich, Kansas City
“There seem to be endless numbers of companies offering punting experiences in Cambridge. I was in a group of ten, and I’m not even sure how we ended up talking to someone from the Cambridge Punt Company. But from the beginning the guy was willing to work with us on pricing, as we were a large group that would take up an entire boat. Once we boarded, our guide was personable and knowledgeable about the many sites along the River Cam. The 45-minute ride actually lasted more like an hour. This was a truly enjoyable way to see the city and university. I was very happy with this company.”
