Manchester Ship Canal Cruises

A truly memorable journey

Here's an alternative way to discover Manchester - by boat.

Mersey Ferries offers a fascinating Manchester Ship Canal Cruise along a 35-mile stretch of canal.

Featuring a lively commentary that reveals the facts, history and dramas of one of Britain's major waterways, this six hour cruise will leave you with a true appreciation of how the canal's construction transformed Manchester forever.

Departing from Salford Quays, Manchester to Liverpool on selected dates from April to October 2014, many of the cruises include a two and a half hour stop in Liverpool, before coaches collect and return you to your starting point.
