Red Boat hire

We had missed the last York Boat so jumped into the Red Boat drive yourself boat. What fun actually steering the boat yourself up and down the river Ouse. £25 for 30 minutes.

We visited for the early eveninfb cruise, but unfortunately, the weather wasn't great. We had pre booked our tickets so went on so as not to lose out. Was a great trip up the river, with the staff opening up the rain cover for us so we could get a better view. With it being so quiet (only our group... More

Really enjoyed our wee river cruise. Skipper was very informative, cheery and certainly knows his stuff! Tea/coffee/alcohol is available aboard.

Excellent value for money and food was lovely. There was a delay in leaving due to the company booking three cruises to leave all at 19.30pm. Having allocated table is good as no pushing me shoving

The staff were very friendly and helpful, particularly the DJ who played a wide range of music - it seemed there was nothing he didn't have! There are no stag dos allowed so the boat was... More

Took a trip on the river with some friends paid about £50 and then listened to a commentary that was very hard to understand to a back ground of children totally uninterested in the trip crying and playing. Not a lot to see that I could not have seen taking a walk. I would not do this again

I took my three year old daughter this afternoon and she had a lovely time. It was only an hour long but she was kept fully occupied that whole time. There were activities along the way, colouring and stickering, which are among her favourite hobbies. There was an age appropriate quiz and a fancy dress competition.It probably helped that she...
