Join this 1-hour Early Evening Cruise for an entertaining and informative tour of historic York by boat on the River Ouse. The onboard hosts will give you all of those important facts and figures concerning the many sights that you will sail past.

The boat sets sail at 7:30pm from King’s Staith Landing in York’s city centre, returning to the same location an hour later.

During the cruise, the captain will keep you entertained with live commentary about the sites you pass. Learn about York’s history of flooding and its prosperity as an inland port, as you sail along the river that brought the Romans and the Vikings to this site.

The vessel that you will sail on features an enclosed and heated saloon, so is great in all weathers. There are also rest rooms and a fully stocked bar. This is the perfect start to your evening in York.
