Great cruise

The cruise was very informative, I didn't realise Ulverstone had so much history. The reflections were very pretty.

My husband and I really enjoyed the river cruise. We learnt a lot about the history of Ulverston and it was a really nice way to see more of the area, flora and fauna. Definitely worth a look.

Might take the family, when they come down to visit me, next year. There's a lovely covered set of tables and chairs in the park, the shops are convenient in... More

We had a lovely cruise with Kim on her little boat Jus Leven. We didn't realise there was so.much history on the banks of the Leven. It is a lovely interesting stretch of the river. We'll be back in the autumn to do it again!
