Half Hour City Cruise

Please note: your ticket will be valid for any single sailing on your chosen date. From 4th November 2019 the last departure will be at 4pm.

This tranquil half-hour cruise along the River Dee departs from The Groves. From there, we'll take you upstream, under the suspension bridge, past Grosvenor Park and the Earl’s Eye, then we'll follow the long sweep of the Meadows to the city limits before we return you to The Groves. The cruise offers a new view of Chester and takes in some beautiful and interesting riverside properties. Look out for the local wildlife too, including swans, cormorants and kingfishers.
