Details will be on your ticket.
Parking charges apply at Anderton Boat Lift.
Please be aware that if you make your own arrangements to be dropped off at Acton Bridge you will also need to make arrangement to be collected from Sutton Weaver at the end of the cruise, as our coach will only be returning passengers to their vehicles at Anderton Boat Lift.
We are aware that because of the high operating costs of The Danny, the tickets can be quite expensive for a family group so we have scheduled in three mini cruises which we hope will be perfect for a family cruise with your little sailors.
There are single adult tickets, child tickets (age 3-16) and a limited number of free infant tickets for 0-2 years (12 per cruise) as well as a Family Ticket for two adults and two children.
The cruise will depart from our berth at Sutton Weaver Swing Bridge at 1800 hrs and sail towards Marsh Lock where we will turn before returning to Sutton Weaver Swing Bridge. The cruise will last one hour.
Parking will be at our berth at Sutton Weaver where our Stewards will make sure we get everyone parked safely. There is a Teddy Bear Trail onboard to help the little sailors explore The Danny.
