Christmas at Skipton Boat Trips

Do your best to forget the troubles of this year with one of the many events on offer at Skipton Boat Trips! Now more than ever, it’s important to celebrate whatever and whenever we can (safely of course!), so here are a few things we’re offering to try and keep some Christmas cheer!

Christmas Whisky Tasting Cruise
Join us  aboard the Dalesman canal boat for a relaxing Whisky Cruise like no other! A wide range of whisky’s to try and even learn how to make a classic cocktail. Your host will be on hand to offer an insight into the interesting history and origins of whisky, or is it whiskey?

Public Christmas Roast Dinner Cruise
Come on board and enjoy the carols, crackers and Christmas dinner! From the galley, an amazing 3-course meal is brought out to your table. A delicious homemade soup with croutons, and traditional Roast Turkey Dinner with all the trimmings! Christmas Pudding with brandy sauce or Apple Pie and ice-cream is then enjoyed before coffee and tea is served. It’s so much fun and an unusual venue for a Christmas Event!

Magical Santa Trips
No matter your age, this is a great way to start the festive season. Come aboard the Cobbydale for a boat ride and meet Santa! Bookings are essential. It sells out fast. Santa calls up the children by name and invites them to join him at the front of the boat. He has a little chat with them about what you have told us about them and then offers them a bag of goodies. Adults
get to appreciate the boat journey whilst enjoying a hot drink and a tasty mince pie.

Christmas Gin & Fizz Cruise
Enjoy some festive tunes and join us aboard the Dalesman canal boat for a Christmas Gin & Fizz Cruise like no other! Claire from The Big Gin Experience hosts a 2-hour Gin Cruise where she will teach you how to make that perfect serve for your gin…and with more than 30 gins to try, you’re going to find one that you love.
