The River Wye at Symonds Yat is one of the most beautiful places in the Wye Valley AONB and what better way to enjoy this natural beauty than by taking one of the Wye Valley Cruises operated from Symonds Yat West, just a few miles from the historic market town of Ross-on-Wye?

From Easter until October each year, cruisers the Lady Charmaine and the Lady Christina make their way through the gorge that divides Symonds Yat East and West, piloted by Captain Richard and Captain Tony, who impart a wealth of knowledge of places of scenic and historic interest to their passengers.

Enjoy a relaxing cruise along the River Wye with Wye Valley Cruises.

Each cruise takes approximately forty minutes, during which your Captain will direct your gaze to the 13th century local church of St. Dubricius, with its rare Tulip Tree or draw your attention to the hand operated rope ferries that cross the river many times daily. There is a wonderful view of three counties and during your trip you will also see Yat Rock, where nesting Peregrine Falcons soar around the cliff. You may also be lucky enough to spot some of the other local wildlife along the way.

The proprietors of Wye Valley Cruises look forward to welcoming you aboard but in case of adverse weather conditions would advise those booking in advance to telephone 24 hours before their cruise to confirm that service is running as normal.

Wye Valley Cruises is situated just off the A40 between Ross-on-Wye and Monmouth. Simply follow the signs for Symonds Yat West Leisure Park. There is plenty of parking space for cars and coach drivers have the luxury of being able to drive their passengers right to the riverbank, where they will be greeted by their Captain.
