About

The final cruise of 2018 will be Monday 15th October 2018.

An amazing cruise into history.

Relax and enjoy a fascinating 6 hour, 35 mile journey along this famous inland waterway with the legendary Mersey Ferries. From April to October, the cruises take in spectacular scenery leaving you with an awe-inspiring sense of how the canal's construction shaped forever the city of Manchester and the North West of England.

Go on a journey through time, passing through locks and under bridges, mostly unchanged since they were built over 100 years ago. View the succession of swing bridges, a graceful sight as they turn through 90 degrees to allow ships to pass.

Marvel at the historic buildings, industry, fields, houses and the wide open space of the Mersey estuary as you cruise along, all surrounded by nature's beauty and tranquillity.

A fascinating live commentary tells the story of the canal and how it was built, primarily to help Manchester's ailing cotton trade. However, in reality, it did more to boost engineering and became a focus for importers of food and raw materials.

Our refurbished vessels provide excellent facilities, with drinks, refreshments and snacks available for sale throughout the cruise.

Cruises depart on selected dates from both Seacombe, Wirral and Pier Head, Liverpool, or from Salford Quays, Manchester. All cruises include return coach transport to your starting point, unless as a group you wish to book your own transport.

Most cruises to Liverpool also include a short stopover at the end of the cruise (canal traffic permitting) giving you time to take in the brilliant sights of Liverpool, and maybe have a bite to eat or do some shopping at Liverpool ONE. The Albert Dock with its historic buildings and waterfront attractions, such as Tate Liverpool, the Merseyside Maritime Museum and The Beatles Story, is also close by for you to enjoy. Another option is to visit U-boat Story at Woodside Ferry Terminal, an exciting interactive exhibition, telling the amazing story of the German World War II submarine U-534.
