ChesterBoat are a family business with a 40-year history of providing unforgettable river cruise experiences on Chester’s beautiful River Dee.
Take a Half-hour City Cruise for a different view of historic Chester taking in the fabulous views along the River Dee with it's beautiful local wildlife habitat, including swans, cormorants and kingfishers and its impressive riverside homes and gardens while you listen to stories from Chester’s fascinating past.
This tranquil half-hour cruise along the River Dee departs from The Groves and takes you upstream, under the suspension bridge, past Grosvenor Park and the Earl’s Eye, then follows the long sweep of the Meadows to the city limits before returning you to The Groves.
ChesterBoat's Half-Hour Cruises sail daily from February (weather permitting)
There is at least one sailing per hour from 11am to 4pm (5pm during British Summertime), or every 30 minutes at busier times (weekends, school holidays, and nice weather). At very busy times we sail up to every 20 minutes.
Your ticket is valid for any cruise on your chosen day – you don’t need to specify a time when booking your ticket, and we don’t take reservations for particular seats or sailings.
