Cruise Along the Beautiful River Dee Aboard Our Luxury Showboats, the Lady Diana, Mark Twain & the Jackie.
ChesterBoat offer a variety of daytime and evening cruises on the River Dee. You could enjoy a relaxing half hour cruise along the peaceful River Dee. Sailing from The Groves in the centre of Chester, your 30 minute cruise takes you beneath the suspension bridge, past Grosvenor Park and the Earl's Eye, following the long sweep of the 'Meadows'. Past some of the most beautiful and interesting riverside properties and gardens in the country. Enjoy a drink from the bar as you listen to the informative commentary. A river tour of Chester is perfect for a quiet outing.
Alternatively, why not consider our leisurely 2 Hour cruise through 'Eaton Estate', home of the Duke and Duchess of Westminster. This cruise is quite superb, an extension of our city cruise up the beautiful River Dee, cruising through some of the most attractive parts of rural Cheshire, past Heron Bridge and Eccleston Ferry, meandering around the crook of Dee and through 'Eaton Estate' with its most beautiful and peaceful scenery. Aldford is next, then the wonderful sight of the Iron Bridge, before returning to Chester. This is an ideal cruise providing an excellent outing for sightseers to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the river. There may be excellent opportunities to see and photograph wildlife, including, Swans, Wildfowl, Cormorants and even Kingfishers. Enjoy a drink from the well stocked bar as you listen to the informative commentary. If you are booking as a group, why not pre-order lunch on board from our excellent range of menus. Our 2 Hour cruise operates daily between the 23rd of May and 27th of September, 2015 except in June and September when it only operates on weekends.
