Step aboard, relax and enjoy a romantic end to your evening in York…

Sailing at 9:15 p.m., the Floodlit Evening Cruise offers an ideal opportunity after an evening meal at one of York’s numerous nearby restaurants and hotels, to finish your night over a glass of wine or a hot chocolate.

This 70-minute circular cruise will leisurely meander up and down the River Ouse as you listen to a mixture of live Captain’s commentary and relaxing music. Our on board floodlights will illuminate landmarks along the water’s edge for you, as you see the river-scape from a different perspective.

Boarding commences at 8:45 p.m. The boat departs at 9:15 p.m. from our King’s Staith Landing. The boat returns to King’s Staith at 10:25 p.m.

The Floodlit Evening Cruise will sail on one of our five vessels, each of which has an enclosed heated saloon, at least two toilets, and a fully stocked bar serving beers, wines, spirits, soft drinks, hot drinks, and snacks.

If you have any questions about our Floodlit Evening Cruise, then you are welcome to call our Sales Office on 01904 628324. However, we hope that you will be able to find the answers here in our FAQs.
