About Us

Enjoy York's No. 1 sightseeing tour; an entertaining and informative cruise on the River Ouse!

  • Min. 45-Minute Sightseeing Cruise
  • Live Captain's Commentary
  • On-Board Bar With Local Snacks & Beverages

Pre-Booking Advised!
We advise pre-booking your cruise on our website - it's a great way to plan your visit to York!

Step on-board and take a seat on the top deck or wrapped up warm in our enclosed saloon - wherever you sit you will have a great view to uncover the history of our ancient city and the immense impact the River Ouse has had on its development. From the impact of flooding over the centuries to its prosperity as an inland port, bringing precious goods from across the globe into York, including the humble cocoa bean, that super-charged York’s world-famous chocolate industry.

You’ll discover more about all this history, as well as picking up some local knowledge, thanks to live, on-board commentary from our home-grown skippers. During your cruise, treat yourself at our on-board bar, stocked with a selection of beers, wines, spirits, soft drinks, hot drinks and snacks.
