Menai Strait Cruises

A perfect way to enjoy the ever changing panorama of the famous Menai Strait

About Us

Menai Strait cruises are a family run business, first established in the 1940s. Emrys Jones – the 6th generation of ship pilots in our family, an MCA Senior Boat Master runs the business, along with his experienced skippers, so you can rest assure that you’re in very capable hands.

Our 40 minute cruises on board the Queen of the Sea sail from the harbour in Caernarfon or from the Victoria Dock at low water.

Our season generally runs from April to the end of October. Daily sailing times generally start at around 11.00am and run hourly throughout the day – check our daily sailing times page for up to date information.

In the height of the season we often run evening trips too depending on the weather.

The Queen of the Sea is suitable for pushchair and wheelchair access. However, we can only get wheelchairs on at high water – because at low water passengers board from the back of the vessel and there are steps down to the deck.

Well behaved dogs are welcome to join you on your cruise on the Queen of the Sea 😉

The Queen of the Sea is licensed to carry 92 passengers.
