Boat trips – 60 Minute adventures

Hop aboard the Princess Katherine for one of our boat trips around the Salford Quays and Manchester Ship Canal.  This 55/60 min round trip gives you an insight into the history of the area and a unique view of Manchester including Media City, Old Trafford and the disused dry docks.  

Salford Quays is quickly becoming a must do on the list of Manchester’s place to be with the Imperial War Museum, Lowry Arts Theatre, BBC & Granada studios as well as the Lowry Outlet and a host of bars and restaurants it’s the perfect place to spend the day.

Maybe you’ll even spot a TV star or footballing hero!
