Education & Relaxation with ChesterBoat

We offer a unique perspective of Chester as you cruise along the River Dee. The route of our cruises provides an opportunity to deliver a commentary that contains a balanced account of Chester’s Roman and Industrial past with additional reference to local fauna, the advanced water management system on the River Dee, local architecture, life on the river itself and its importance to the development of Chester as a city.

We offer a discount of 10% for groups of 20 or more, with one teacher sailing for free per 20 passengers in the group. Any additional teachers or adults in the party will travel at the concession group rate. Students aged 16 and over also travel at the concession group rate. Group bookings must be made at least 7 days in advance.

We can email you a quiz prior to your cruise, based on the content of the commentary so that you can test how closely your students were listening and how much they learned from the cruise.

We can also arrange extra sailings for groups outside of our advertised Sailing dates and Sailing Times.

As an additional fantastic discount if you are able to cruise with us at 10am or 10:30am for a half hour cruise, your school children can cruise for just £1.50 each! Please note that should you arrive late and sail on a cruise at 11am or later however, you would be charged the normal child group rate..

For further details or to make your group booking, please call our office on 01244 325394.


(Please note that whilst Under 5s sail for free there is a limit of 2 per paying Adult or Concession. Groups of Under 5s would be required to pay the child group rate).
