Electric Boats

  • We offer two different sizes of electric boat:
    • 8-seater (16' long) for up to 8 people (no more than 6 adults)
    • 6-seater (15' long) for up to 6 people (no more than 4 adults)
  • Each boat has a very quiet, electric engine and is simple to drive; it has a steering wheel and a throttle, and its maximum speed on the canal is 2½ miles per hour!
  • No experience of boats is necessary as you'll be given clear tuition before you set off.
  • Should it rain, you simply pull up the rainproof cover and you're sitting inside.
  • We provide life jackets for everyone.
  • On board there is a boating pole for pushing off, mooring pins and a hammer for securing the boat and a lock handle to operate the locks and the lift bridges.
  • Up to two dogs are welcome on each boat.
  • A great day out for large groups - we have two 8-seater boats and four 6-seater boats.
  • Gift vouchers available - a day out on the canal is a perfect present

6-8seater


Canadian canoes

  • We have four canoes (15' long), each suitable for 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 children (maximum weight limit 40 stone). Each person has a single bladed paddle to propel the canoe along.
  • Novices are welcome; you'll receive instruction when you arrive.
  • We provide life jackets for everyone.
  • Up to two dogs can be accommodated in a canoe.
  • On board there are mooring pins and a hammer for securing the boat. You don't need a lock handle as canoes are not allowed in the locks. Instead carry the canoe around the lock to continue your journey.
