70-minute York Evening River Cruise
$18.09
Overview
Set sail on a romantic evening cruise along the River Ouse and see York’s historic landmarks from the water. Sip a glass of Prosecco as you glide past the illuminated city skyline, and admire the riverside parks and buildings lit up by the boat’s floodlights.
What to Expect

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 drink or two.

Adult and Concession tickets (18 years and over) include either a choice of hot drink and a biscuit or a glass of Prosecco, whilst Adult, Concession and Child tickets (17 years and younger) include either a soft drink or a choice of hot drink and biscuit.

This 70-minute circular cruise will leisurely meander up and down the River Ouse as you listen to a relaxing blend of swing and jazz background 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.
