    • Please note, due to periods of heavy rainfalls in the catchment area upstream, the River Ouse in York can occasionally rise to levels which can have an impact on daily operations. Sailing will only be attempted as long as it’s safe. If indeed the water is too high for the boat to sail underneath the bridges, even for our smallest boat, sailing will be unattainable. In the event of such described occurrences, you will receive a full refund or you can use your ticket(s) on another date during your stay
    • This experience requires good weather. If it’s canceled due to poor weather, you’ll be offered a different date or a full refund

    What a great way to see York from a slightly different angle and learn more about its history. Excellent commentary by the skipper made it great fun. A must if you are visiting
