We’ve been asked many times for an evening cruise, so we've added a Twilight Cruise between Ellesmere Port and Canning Dock in the Royal Albert Dock Complex. This four-hour cruise starts where the Shropshire Union Canal joins the Manchester Ship Canal at what is now the National Waterways Museum, Ellesmere Port and we'll enter the River Mersey via the lock at Eastham. We will pass the Cammell Laird shipyard and the Tranmere Oil terminal during our cruise and you can sit back and take in the lovely Wirral and Liverpool Waterfronts whilst enjoying a drink or two!. As well as commentary provided by Captain Dan Cross, there will be some light entertainment provided by LeeAnn James who is back by popular demand.
Parking for this cruise will be at The Royal Albert Dock and our coach will take you to The Danny for the start of your cruise. That way your car is waiting for you at the end of the cruise, or you can even venture into the City to continue your night out. All details will be on your ticket confirmation. More information on the cruise route can be found here.
This six and a half cruise will see you leaving the historic setting of the Royal Albert Dock in Liverpool as we depart through Canning River Entrance into the River Mersey, where we will travel in steam powered Art Deco splendour, taking in the sights along this often busy river as we sail south towards the entrance of the Manchester Ship Canal at Eastham. We will enter through the Eastham lock system and spend a couple of hours on the Manchester Ship Canal before we turn off and join the Weaver Navigation and sail through some of Cheshire’s most stunning countryside to our destination, above Dutton Locks – Acton Bridge. There is a coach included to return you to the Royal Albert Dock after your cruise.
