Christmas at Skipton Boat Trips

Christmas Drinks Ahoy Cruise

Enjoy some festive tunes and join us aboard the Dalesman canal boat for a Christmas Drinks Ahoy Cruise like no other!

For £45, you will receive 5 drinks tokens from the menu, with all the mixers you’ll need, Party Food Platter, a 3-hour cruise down the Leeds & Liverpool Canal, and a great evening out! Bring your friends to this one-of-a-kind experience!


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.

On booking, you are asked for some basic info about the children in the party. Then, a week or two before the trip, you are asked to ring up or email with some more up-to-date details about the children. We then pass this on to Santa. Kids are invited to dress up if they wish, but they don’t have to.

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. These 75-minute trips on board the Cobbydale are extremely popular; bookings are taken all year round, so be sure to get your place in time.


Public Christmas 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!
