Educational

Sprotbrough Riverboat Ltd, have been operating passenger vessels on the Sheffield and South Yorkshire Navigation for over 30 years, and the crew have over 50 years combined experience of the waterways, something which we always enjoy passing onto the next generation. The local area affords us the opportunity to take in a number of features of commercial waterways, as well as the beautiful Don Gorge, and landmarks such as Conisbrough Castle, while the Wyre Lady itself is a little ship steeped in History, and is part of the National Historic Ships Register.

Prices for Educational Cruises start from £150.00 and include a full commentary on all points of interest.

It is our policy to ensure that the crew walk amongst the Children to answer any questions they may have and to assist with any work they may have been set.
