Throughout the summer we run 45-minute trips over the aqueduct four times daily. Views are stunning as you travel serenely over Thomas Telford's famous aqueduct.
We take you on a trip from our own wharf outside our cafe over the impressive aqueduct and back. At almost 127 feet above the River Dee the view is exhilarating as the scenery floats by at walking pace.
Eirlys is the boat for public trips and for groups of over 20 passengers. Trips run from our base at Trevor to Froncysyllte.
The 45-minute trips include two crossings of the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct. Trips run daily from March to October at 12noon, 1pm, 2pm and 3pm. Visitors planning ahead will find it advantageous to ring beforehand in case of last-minute changes.
We have tea, coffee and a bar on board, and there is a commentary about canal history and canalside features as we travel.
