Boat Trip

River Explorer Cruises are back! Cruises sail between 10am-4pm Monday to Friday and 10am-6pm Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays. Cruises depart Pier Head, Liverpool on the hour and Woodside, Wirral at twenty past the hour. 

Mersey Ferries strongly recommend that you book your tickets online before you visit. Your booking allows you to travel on any scheduled cruise on the date selected (subject to availability).

To help keep everyone safe, a few things will have changed since your last visit. Mersey Ferries have been awarded the official UK ‘We’re Good To Go’ mark to show that they have followed government and industry Covid-19 guidelines and have processes in place to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing. For more information about the changes they have made to help keep passengers and staff members safe check out their website here.

Step aboard a Mersey Ferry to see Liverpool’s stunning waterfront at its very best. The decks of the Mersey Ferry offer the best way to see the city’s world-famous skyline. Our River Explorer Cruise takes you on a 50 minute trip where you’ll be captivated by Liverpool’s fascinating history as the world-famous waterfront unfolds before you.

Hop on board the Dazzle Ferry ‘Snowdrop’. Created by Sir Peter Blake, eye-catching motifs cover the boats exterior. Explore the on board exhibition panels and learn more about the role of Dazzle Ships in the country’s wartime history – check our website for Dazzle Ferry sailing dates. Aboard our other ferry ‘Royal Iris of the Mersey’, spot famous Liverpool landmarks along the riverside using our on board interpretation panels. The commentary played on both ferries explains the iconic sights before you.

With all the fresh air you’re sure to work up an appetite so enjoy a picnic aboard in our indoor or outdoor seating areas. There’s a café on both ferries too which serve hot and cold drinks and refreshments.
