River Explorer Cruises are back! We can’t wait to see you again. Cruises sail between 10am-4pm Monday to Friday and 10am-5pm Saturday and Sunday. Cruises depart Pier Head, Liverpool on the hour and Woodside, Wirral at twenty past the hour. Due to major roadworks in Liverpool City Centre, please allow extra time if you’re departing from Pier Head.
We’ve introduced timed tickets on our River Explorer Cruises, so you’ll need to book online before you set sail.
All services will sail from Pier Head and Woodside terminals, whilst Seacombe is closed for major refurbishment work.
Face coverings must be worn at all times on the ferry and in the terminals. Remember to keep a safe distance from other passengers and check in with the QR codes to comply with track and trace legislation. Find more information and prices on our Current Service Information page.
