We are a local Children's Bereavement Charity and with the support of Waxi we took some of our children on the water taxi. They loved every second of it. Highly recommended.

Great journey from Castlefield to Trafford centre. Drops you very near the trafford centre almost in car park. Friendly skipper. Good price. Fantastic way to see Manchester from the water. I did a review in my youtube video. Channel = martin 0401 video = Sailing in the city. Check it out. But Highly recommended. wrap up warm if its cold
