Fabulous experience to share with my visiting South African friend, on an extremely bracing 2nd January - the Hurricane wind that had been battering the Coastline for days! We sailed graciously up and down the Mersey, great commentary covering past, present and future ventures in this beautiful part of the world, detailing the architecture along the way. Lovely warm ship, clean, spotless restroom, good hot drinks and fresh sandwiches. Staff delightful. Excellent value for money. Would highly recommend. David,Gilli and Pat.xxx

Was a little disappointed, but at least can say we've been on the Ferry, cross the Mersey! You can get off and see other sights and board again, which would make it more interesting. The weather was awful, unfortunately and could see nothing but grey and rain.

Great alternative perspective to viewing Liverpool

We couldn't get tickets on line but were available through Viator

Not the best day for sailing July 5th and very windy also school kids allowed to run round the boat unattended teachers took no notice of them

, Jun 2016

Very informative about the area along the river and relaxing as well.
