Explore the River Ouse with YorkBoat
YorkBoat offer a range of daytime cruises for you to include in your visit to York. Sightseeing cruises have been enjoyed by visitors to York since the 1840s. Nowadays our modern fleet of all-weather passenger boats offer toilet facilities and a fully stocked bar serving bottled local real ale, lagers, ciders, wine, spirits, soft drinks, hot drinks and snacks. You are also more than welcome to bring a picnic on board with you.
Our York City cruises sail most frequently, taking in York’s rich Roman, Viking, Medieval and Industrial past. At various times through the summer we also offer cruises to Bishopthorpe Palace, the stunning riverside residence of his Grace the Archbishop of York and delightful Afternoon Tea cruises.
Our Early Evening cruise provides you with the opportunity to relax and unwind.
If you are staying in the picturesque villages of Acaster Malbis and Naburn you may like to travel to or back from York using our summer River Bus Service, although please note that this is a transport service and not a sightseeing cruise as such.
If you are planning to bring a large group to York, we can accommodate school parties, coach parties, in fact any large group travelling together. Pre-booked parties can take advantage of fantastic discounts. We also offer an Afternoon Buffet Cruise for groups of 30 to 60 people.
Finally, remember that you can meet Father Christmas on board our famous Santa Experience every December.
We look forward to welcoming you aboard…..
