Would 100% recommend this. My parents were visiting on a rainy afternoon and we weren’t sure what to do. I came across this and was so glad. It was a really relaxing boat trip with an audio recording of the things and buildings that we passed. You can buy drinks and snacks on the boat for a really affordable price. Instead of tips they take donations for a cat charity which was nice. Will be back :)

Wow wow wow, I will definitely come back as this boat ride was super fun. Especially when the weather is good and the sun is out. There are toilets on the boat and bar that has coffee, hot chocolate, alcohol drinks and snack. Perfect for couples, families or single travellers!

Very friendly ladies on board. Very informative and a relaxing hour was had on The Manchester Ship Canal. Thank you, would highly recommend. 😊

Very enjoyable, nice and relaxing….well presented….and value for money..

The boat was spotless and the service excellent. A lovely little tour .
