Sailings April to October 2024

The 45 minute cruise will depart from the temporary boarding platform next to Causey Bridge and make its way north to Darley Abbey and back again.

Learn about the river, the wildlife, Derby’s place in history and our exciting plans for the river and the Derby Canal via our on-board audio commentary. There will also be activities and challenges for children of all ages.

Our boat is electrically powered from solar panels and designed with the environment in mind. So simply sit back on the open air foredeck and enjoy the sun and sights of the Museum of Making, Darley Park and the Derwent Valley and look out for our resident kingfishers. There will be hot and cold drinks and light refreshments available from the on-board café.



Please note that the temporary boarding platform for 2024 is next to Causey Bridge. For more information, please visit our website Website or follow us on Instagram, X and Facebook.
