Know before you go
• Please note that the River Ouse in York can occasionally rise to levels that can have an impact on this cruise's daily operations after periods of heavy rainfall in the catchment area upstream
• The local partner will always attempt to sail, so long as it is safe to do so. There can come a point where the smallest boat can no longer fit underneath the bridges
• Depending on the height of the waters, it may not be possible to sail at all. In this instance, you will either be eligible for a full refund or your ticket(s) will happily be accepted on another date
