Groups can be sure of a warm welcome at ChesterBoat.

Whether you choose our Half Hour City Cruise or our Two-hour Iron Bridge Cruise, you’ll be able to relax on the beautiful River Dee, knowing you’re in good company – see the sights, watch for wildlife and enjoy a drink from the bar.

We offer a discount of 10% for groups of 20 or more, with one person sailing for free per 20 passengers.

On two-hour cruises we can offer delicious catering options, including Afternoon Tea or Cream Tea – see our full range of menus by clicking here. Where possible, we can arrange sailings outside our advertised schedule for large groups.

Coach drop-off and pick-up is available right next to our moorings at the Groves at any time of day, with coach parking available nearby at the Little Roodee car park. Your group organiser or coach driver will receive a free hot drink if they are joining the group for the cruise. Our staff will ensure that space is reserved for your group to be able to sit together.
