VISIT YORK RESIDENTS' FESTIVAL 2019

York Residents; join us for a cruise and learn more about your home City!

As a part of the Visit York Residents' Festival, York's residents have the chance to join us for a 30 minute cruise on the River Ouse and learn more about their home City.

View York from a different perspective whilst our friendly and knowledgeable team guide you leisurely up and downstream. 

Admire the scenery from the comfort of the enclosed saloon or the upper deck. Take home fascinating facts about the incredible history of York and its river from the live, sightseeing commentary delivered by our local skippers. Learn about York’s famous history of flooding and its previous prosperity as an inland port, all while sailing along the very river that brought the Romans and the Vikings to our beautiful city. You are more than welcome to treat yourself to a refreshing drink from the bar whilst resting your feet.

All of our vessels which are operating on Residents' Festival weekend have an enclosed heated saloon, at least two toilets and a fully stocked bar serving beers, wines, spirits, soft drinks, hot drinks and snacks.

Please bring with you a York Card or Student Card as proof of residence. We will also accept a utility bill showing your address along with a photo ID. Please note that you cannot and do not need to pre-book. Seats are allocated on a first-come first served basis. Boarding will commence approximately 30 minutes before the advertised departure time. We hope that you all have a great Residents' Festival; you deserve it!

If you are not a York resident then you can still join us for a cruise. Tickets can be purchased on boarding.
