Sunday 15 December 2020 1pm – 2.30pm
Boarding at 12.30pm
A family focused cruise sure to bring the joy of Christmas to life.
Father Christmas will make an appearance on this 90 min cruise along the Whanganui River, bringing with him a sack full of presents for children under the age of 12.
Over the years the man in red has had difficulty navigating his reindeer and sleigh onto the Whanganui River and the Paddle Steamer Waimarie. He has chartered the use of a locally-owned Waka and Helicopter in the past – what mode of transport will he acquire this year?
Please note tickets for this cruise can only be purchased at the Riverboat Centre and not online.
When booking, please supply name, age and gender of children attending for Santa’s gift bag.

Unfortunately for health and safety reasons we are generally unable to accommodate wheelchairs on board the Waimarie. It is a very old vessel and facilities on board are not easily accessible, with several steps, narrow passages and standard toilets.
Wheelchairs with less than 70cms between the outside tires may be acceptable, especially if the user has some form of mobility.
Walking frames are acceptable especially if the user has some form of mobility.
To avoid disappointment please check with our office if you need assistance in any way and our Manager will be able to provide you with more information.
