York Floodlit Evening Cruise


Step aboard, relax and enjoy a romantic end to your evening in York.

The Floodlit Evening Cruise offers an ideal opportunity after an evening meal at one of York’s numerous nearby restaurants and hotels, to finish your night over a drink or two.

This 70-minute circular cruise will leisurely meander up and down the River Ouse as you listen to a  relaxing blend of swing and jazz background music. Our on board floodlights will illuminate the riverside for you, as you see the river-scape from a different perspective.

Boarding commences at 20.45. The boat departs at 21.15 from our King’s Staith Landing. The boat returns to King’s Staith at 22.25.

The Floodlit Evening Cruise will sail on one of our five vessels, each of which has an enclosed heated saloon, at least two toilets, and a fully stocked bar serving beers, wines, spirits, soft drinks, hot drinks, and snacks.

Your ticket includes:

  • 1 hour 10 minutes cruise with jazz backgound music

  • Glass of Prosecco or a choice of hot drink with a biscuit​
