Manchester Ship Canal Cruises from Ellesmere Port

Venture onto the majestic Manchester Ship Canal... 

Mersey Ferries fascinating Manchester Ship Canal Cruise offers you a North West day out to remember. Come aboard with us for a trip that’s as awe inspiring as it is relaxing.

You’ll travel the canal, enjoying spectacular scenery and a lively commentary along the way. We’ll tell the story of how this magnificent waterway shaped the city of Manchester and the North West of England; take you through locks and bridges that have remained largely unchanged since their construction over 100 years ago; plus show you some of the region’s most stunning architectural and natural sights.

To make your journey even more enjoyable our licensed bar and servery are available on board, selling refreshments and snacks throughout the cruise.

Two trips are on offer - either starting at the Museum and travelling to Salford Quays, or beginning at Salford and arriving at the museum in time for an afternoon's exploration.
