Fancy taking charge of your own boat? City Cruises York has a fleet of fourteen self-drive boats, perfect for your own family outing exploring the river Ouse. Don’t worry shipmates, no experience is required as you will be given full instructions, a map and life jackets for your children. Bring a picnic and watch the world go by - you might even get the chance to stop at York's famous ice cream boat and beat the queues for a cone! Book online for hires on a Monday to Friday morning.
