Santa Cruise

Santa Cruise is a guided boat trip & Santa visit from Sketrick Island, Whiterock, Killinchy, Co.Down. The ultimate Santa experience.

Join our merry old elf for a hair raising sleigh ride around the islands aboard our fast speed boat – Black Jacket. Hold onto your santa hats as we fly through the waters of Strangford Lough. You will be carol singing all the way, listening to some Christmas tunes whilst riding the waves back to Santa’s Grotto. Warm up by the fireside in our cosy cabin with mince/apple pies, mulled wine or hot chocolate.Then visit Santa and the elves  and find out if you’ve been naughty or nice!
