Nice pleasant, relaxing trip.

Whiled away a good half hour pootling along the River Dee. Not really much to see, but it was very relaxing and the commentary was very informative. A reasonably priced activity. Would definitely recommend.

Lovely 30min boat ride

This was a very pleasant 30 min boat ride up the River Dee with a commentary given useful information. It's only £7.50 per adult and well worth the money. There is a little bar on board for cool drinks if required.

It goes from the landing stage opposite hickory smokehouse. You can pay on boat. It goes 15 mins down river and back The 2 hour cruise is a better value trip
