You come aboard and we show you everything you need to know during a briefing and demonstration before your canal cruise. Then you're off enjoying your boating holiday. It's like driving a car, but much easier and more relaxing! To get a taste why not book a short staycation, and begin by exploring the stunning waterways here in the UK.
