BIRD watching and wildlife cruises are set to make a return to Mersey Ferries this summer.

The cruises will set sail along the River Mersey and out into Liverpool Bay giving passengers the opportunity to witness wildlife up close.

Passengers will have the opportunity to see long-tailed skaus, peregrine falcons, osprey, and Atlantic grey seals.

Experts will be on hand to answer any questions and offer live commentary.

As well as animal spotting, there will be children’s craft activities on board, wildlife bingo, and a raffle hosted by RSPB.

Cruises will be taking place on Saturday, July 16 and Sunday, September 11.

Tickets are £20 for adults, £10 for children (three-15), and infants aged two and below go free.
