Manchester Ship Canal Cruise Reviews

Manchester Ship Canal Cruise


Trip to another world! - 5*
"How many times has one travelled along the M56/M6 from Chester/ North Wales to Manchester. For most of us of a certain age dozens of trips. How many times have we seen the Ship Canal apart from crossing the bridge at Warrington, I hazard the guess of zero. So this trip takes one on a very common destination to destination trip, but by a completely hidden route. Fantastic, places that are just names become reality, history moving by at the pace of the tide and the vessel. I could go on at length, but better find out for yourself. I must add, with emphasis, that everyone we met who worked for Mersey Ferries could not have been more cheerful, pleasant and helpful. Suppose this should be taken for granted for Scouser group!!! The trip commentary was informative, chatty and comprehensive. To summarise one of the best value £40+ that I have ever come across." October 2017

An amazing way to celebrate a classy Stag Do! - 5*
"Ever since I was a teenager I wanted to take the trip between Liverpool and Salford on the ship canal. I was looking for a unique venue to host part of my classy stag do, and decided upon the Manchester Ship Canal Cruise for that. It couldn't have been better! From start to finish the staff and crew on board were welcoming, good humoured, and completely delighted to have us on board and we were delighted to be there with them! I naturally had reservations as to whether or not we would be welcome, but as this wasn't your average stag do, the Liverpool hospitality shone through all day. We were thanked (and filmed!) by passengers also on board and told that we "made the day for everyone" - in reality the cruise and the staff made the day for all 15 of us. If you have doubts as to whether or not you should take this cruise from other reviews on this website then have no doubt at all - a wonderful day, particularly if the weather is kind to you, and great value; it's a must see / do experience. Thank you to all concerned on Saturday, 5 August 2017!" August 2017

Love It! - 5*
"This is one of those journeys that has to be done if you are in the slightest interested in seeing our past at work. A superb sail taking most of the day from Liverpool, The Wirral up to Manchester. So much to see from industry to countryside - all slipping by all day. 5 sets of lochs - which is brilliant to experience. This is a journey not to be missed. The food on board is excellent - try the scouse." June 2017
