Enjoy a unique experience on board the ferry which lets you take in the sights and delights of the river banks along the river Tyne.
Sailing to the mouth of the Tyne and then on to Newcastle and back again you’ll see many historic monuments along the way and listen to a fascinating live commentary, brought to you by one of our guides.
Places of interest include the Customs House, North Shields Fish Quay, the memorial to Admiral Lord Collingwood and the Tyne’s old shipyards. You’ll also see the amazing transformations which have taken place on Newcastle and Gateshead quaysides and get to sail under the iconic Millennium Bridge.
A fun and leisurely way to spend a Sunday afternoon!
