Enjoy a day on the water

Explore the secret waterways of Britain on one of our self-drive Day Boat Hire narrowboats.

13 start locations

We have 13 start locations all together from our most northerly base in Anderton to our most southerly base in Hilperton giving you a wide variety of scenic routes with and without locks.

Most of our locations offer a choice of routes heading either left or right out of the marina. Most routes offer a convenient canal side pub, ideal for your lunch stop.

A day boat for everyone

We operate several sizes of day boats from 13 strategically placed locations. Some take up to 8 people and others up to 10 and 12.

We also operate a wheelchair accessible day boat from our base at Goytre Wharf in South Wales. This boat is hired by the hour and can hold a standard wheel chair or an electric chair.
