Overview

Based in Worsley our family run company operates cruises along the historic Bridgewater canal from Worsley village, Boothstown, Sale, Dunham Massey and beyond. Francis Egerton is a luxury wide beam passenger vessel that can accommodate up to 32 passengers. Fully central heated it enables us to operate all year round. Private charter is available for groups whether it be a special birthday, anniversary, hen party, wedding, corporate event, coach tour or just a group outing. For individuals we offer our very popular Sunday lunch and Afternoon tea cruises which depart regularly throughout the year. Whether you wish to sample our fine dining or just enjoy the heritage of this historic canal we can tailor a package which will make for a truly unique and magical experience.
