Make your own way to the River Dee pier in central Chester and step aboard your spacious sightseeing boat. Find a comfortable spot and have your camera at the ready as you begin a scenic 30-minute cruise along the river.
Take in the pretty views over Chester’s spires and rooftops, and admire the elegant Georgian terraces ranged along the riversides. Cruise past leafy Grosvenor Park and take snaps of the lush meadows and wetlands of the Meadows and Earl’s Eye conservation area, both curving around a sweeping bend in the river.
Watch for swans, cormorants and kingfishers around the water, and look for other aquatic life as you drift along the peaceful waters. During your journey, hear fascinating background about the passing sights from the onboard commentary, and stay refreshed with tea, coffee, wine or beer (own expense) available from the bar.
After a leisurely 30 minutes on the water, return to the pier where your cruise ends.
