Grab your best Christmas Jumpers, PJ's and Dresses for The Legendary Kittywake Santa Cruise, filled with magic and fun for both children and adults!
Boarding at Wigan Pier you will be greeted by Santa's Elves who will be there to help with anything you may need. Once we set sail elves will serve the adults with either a Hot Mulled Wine or Warm Vimto plus a delicious Pie. whilst you cruise down the canal and look out for Santa children will receive a cup drink, sweets to nibble on and a fun activity sheet with letter head ready to write to Santa. As you know Santa struggled to land his sleigh last year so we may be in for a bumpy time when he lands on the roof of Elleswake.
Children will each have the opportunity to meet Santa and tell him their Christmas wishes before they receive their special gift! 
As always our elves will perform their signature dance moves with a boogie at the end of your cruise guests are encouraged to join in, places sell out fast.

Please take note of the following:
Under 1 year old/Babies: children under the age of one can go free without the gifts from Santa and refreshments, These children must be kept on knees.
Wheelchairs/Prams: If you have any wheelchair users in your group then Bookings must be made by phone on:01942-836-885.
