Buy a Mersey Ferries Gift Voucher this Father's Day

There are only so many t-shirts, smellies, socks and souvenir mugs you can buy one man, so why don't you switch things up a little this Father’s Day and get them something different - a Mersey Ferries gift voucher

River Explorer Cruise Gift Vouchers

Give him something to look forward to, and plan a special day out together (in the not too distant future, hopefully!) 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 with your Dad, 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 take the trip together.

Mersey Ferry on the Manchester Ship Canal Cruise

Manchester Ship Canal Cruise Gift Vouchers

If your Dad loves photography, nature, birdwatching and history, how does a gift voucher for one of our Manchester Ship Canal Cruises sound? It’s a fascinating day cruise along the ship canal with live commentary from one of our super knowledgeable Blue Badge Guides.

You can sail from Salford or Liverpool, so maybe you could stay overnight before or after the cruise and explore Liverpool or Manchester. It’ll be a lovely treat, especially as we’ve all be stuck indoors a lot recently!

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, the industrial backdrop of the docks and appreciate the engineering feat of the 17,000 men that dug the 36 mile long canal. There’s a café on board, or you can bring a picnic full of your Dad’s favourite drinks and snacks to make the day super special.

We’re not sailing at the moment, but Manchester Ship Canal Cruise gift vouchers are valid until October 2021 so it’s an amazing opportunity to plan the perfect day out together. Gift vouchers are £45 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 Father’s Day we think you should give your father figure 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 Father’s Day!
