We each paid our £3 for a 20 minute river trip on a little yellow boat. It left on time and was very enjoyable. Definitely worth the money although it only went as far as the start of the Marina on the "river" trip which...More

We were keen on a small boat trip during our visit to Whitby and settled for the yellow Esk Belle as the old lifeboat wasn't running. At £3 each for a 20 min trip you can't really complain. Simple clean boat that takes you slightly...More

What can you get for £3 these days, the answer to that is very little. This was a great little boat ride, 20 minutes is just the right amount of time. Lovely little boat tour for £3. Children under 5 ride free

£3 each or £2.50 if you pick a discount leaflet up. For a 20 minute boat tour around the harbour. Wonderful views and a pleasant tour.
