Enjoy a different side of Chester - the riverside! Sail with us along the beautiful River Dee.
Choose from a Half-hour City Cruise taking in the city's rich Roman, Mediaeval and Industrial heritage, or sit back and relax on our Iron Bridge Cruise, a two-hour trip into the glorious Cheshire countryside, through the Duke of Westminster’s Estate. Our routes along the Dee are full of interesting things to see and amazing wildlife - have your camera ready!
You can really enjoy the freedom of the city by opting for a great value combined ChesterBoat and City Sightseeting open-bus tour ticket. Put your feet up and let someone else do the driving, by road and by water!
We're a family business, with 40 years experience of providing first-class experiences.

Our cruises, occasions and special events are a relaxing, comfortable all-weather attraction, with options for covered seating, a fully licenced bar and toilets.
