A pleasant way to spend an hour on a sunny day - I wouldn’t go on a dull day. York is a delightful city. Compared to other riverside cities it is in my opinion about 6/10 for beauty. The river perspective is good to view...More

A great ride out on the board to see the city from another view point. Commentary on route. Takes about an hour.

We took the 45 minute trip, although chose to get off at an earlier stop so 35 minutes. It's very reasonably priced, and our Captain, Larry, did a great job on the commentary.

Hi, the Ice Cream boat has cleats on the side where the boat can tie up alongside so there is no need to tie the boat up anywhere else
