San Francisco has its cable cars, New York has its yellow cabs… and Liverpool has its world famous Mersey Ferries.

The River Explorer Cruise is a must do experience and the best way to see and enjoy Liverpool’s iconic waterfront and UNESCO world heritage site. Departing hourly from Pier Head Liverpool, the 50 minute experience sails between Pier Head, Seacombe and Woodside. You can even ‘Hop On & Hop Off’ at each terminal and combine your trip with a visit to Spaceport and U-boat Story. Entrance to U-boat Story is free with all River Explorer Cruise tickets.  

During 2018 hop aboard the Dazzle Ferry ‘Snowdrop’. Created by Sir Peter Blake, eye-catching motifs cover the boats exterior. Explore the on board exhibition panels and learn more about the role of Dazzle Ships in the country’s wartime history. Check out the dazzle calendar for sailing dates at

A great way to discover some of the best sights, is to combine Mersey Ferries iconic cruise with a fascinating City Explorer Open Top Bus Tour. The ‘Do the Double’ ticket offers great value by combining both tours.  Book a joint deal here!
