Cruise along the beautiful River Ouse with City Cruises York, specialising in Sightseeing Cruises, Party Cruises and Private Charters for all occasions.

City Cruises York, formerly YorkBoat, are proud to be a part of the City Cruises family, joining the outstanding operations in London and Poole. Over the course of 2017, the YorkBoat name and logo will be phased out and we will now be operating as City Cruises York. You can still expect the same fantastic service from our team and all existing online and office bookings will, of course, be honoured. We remain a family owned operator, albeit now part of a much larger one.

City Cruises York are one of the city’s longest established visitor attractions and we have been delivering first-class experiences to our passengers and guests for over 30 years. Our cruises include Daytime City Cruises and Afternoon Tea Cruises through to our Floodlit Evening Cruise or even a Party Nights Afloat Cruise which is ideal for hen parties, birthday parties or social events. Don’t forget our fleet of fourteen Self-Drive Red Boats, perfect for your own family outing exploring the river.

Why not book a Private Charter to celebrate a wedding, birthday, anniversary or corporate entertainment. In fact we can put together a cruise package for any occasion. Explore our website and start planning your cruise on the River Ouse. We look forward to welcoming you aboard.

Become a captain and explore the sites of York’s riverside in style! Red Boats are available to hire from 9:45 a.m. An Early Bird Price is available until 12 noon. The closing time is determined by factors such as weather, river levels and demand. Call our sales office for more details (Please note that Red Boats cannot be pre-booked).
