Day trips

A day on the canal that will live in your memory

Your very own boat for a day!

Our day trips are tailor-made for your particular group. You hire the whole boat and we provide the crew. You need to book at least one month in advance.

A day trip lasts up to seven hours (6 hours in winter). Half day trips last four hours. During the months of longer daylight, we can also offer evening 4 hour trips, but you need to plan on the boat being back at the base before sunset. If you’d like a longer trip during summer, please talk to the bookings team.
