    • Please note: The River Ouse in York can occasionally rise to levels that can have an impact on our daily operations after periods of heavy rainfall in the catchment area upstream. We will always attempt to sail for as long as it is safe to do so. There can come a point where our smallest boat can no longer fit underneath the bridges. Depending on the height of the river, we may not be able to sail at all. In this instance, you will either be eligible for a full refund or we will happily accept your ticket(s) on another date during your stay if we can sail.
    • This experience requires good weather. If it’s canceled due to poor weather, you’ll be offered a different date or a full refund

    Lovely idea. My sister and I decided to try out an evening cruise while visiting York. There is no talking, just lovely jazzy music and the pleasant, relaxing noise of water flowing. It's night time, so don't expect to see York in all it's glory - instead you'll see some lit up

    After one of York's hottest days we went on this tour and it was so relaxing and cooling with a slight breeze and after being on the chaotic York streets all day it was so peaceful. I would highly recommend this tour.

    9.15 pm departure meant it was dark. Disappointed to find we cruised for 10 minutes to turn around and only saw trees and riverbank. No commentary whatsoever and didn't understand why 1940 and 1950 old songs had to be played and loud. Hardly anyone else on this trip either. Only
