If you're looking for the perfect Christmas gift this year, we've got you covered. There are only so many bottles of perfume, smellies, socks and souvenir mugs you can buy your loved ones, so why don't you switch things up a little this Christmas and get them something different - a Mersey Ferries gift voucher

River Explorer Cruise

Give your friends and family something to look forward to, and plan a special day out together in 2021 on one of our daily River Explorer Cruises.

Our 50-minute sightseeing cruises around Liverpool’s historic waterfront aren’t sailing at the moment, but we’ll be back as soon as we possibly can. You’ll find out loads about the history of Liverpool, the ferry and River Mersey from our recorded commentary, while you spend some quality time together, and watch the world go by from the deck of the ferry.

River Explorer Cruise gift vouchers are £11 per person. Vouchers are valid until the end of December 2021, so you’ve got lots of time to enjoy your trip.

Manchester Ship Canal Cruise

Mersey Ferry on the Manchester Ship Canal Cruise


Give your special someone gift vouchers for one of our 2021 Manchester Ship Canal Cruises this Christmas. It’s a fascinating round-trip day cruise along the ship canal with live commentary from one of our super knowledgeable Blue Badge Guides.

There’s no better way to experience the canal than from the deck of the ferry. Breathe in the fresh air, enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Mersey Estuary, sail under bridges mostly unchanged since they were built over 125 years ago and experience the rich legacy of Victorian architecture.

It's the perfect Christmas present for history buffs, nature lovers & wildlife watchers. 

Manchester Ship Canal Cruise gift vouchers are valid for 12 months so it’s an amazing opportunity to plan the perfect day out together in 2021. Gift vouchers are £46 per person.


We’ve all had a bit of extra time on our hands recently to think about our lives, our loved ones, and re-evaluate how we want to spend our time going forwards as we take our first steps into this next chapter. That’s why this Christmas we think you should give your loved ones an extra special gift - a day out they’ll never forget with Mersey Ferries - with the person that means the world to them (you!).

Find out more about our gift vouchers online.

We hope you have an amazing day out and don’t forget to tag us in your photos on social media @merseyferries.

Happy Christmas!
