Skippered cruising is a great introduction to canals. Cruising along at a leisurely pace allows you to enjoy the views of rural England. It's a chance to re-charge your batteries, relaxing in the peace and tranquility of the countryside. It can be a time for you to indulge in your favourite pastimes - fishing (licence required), painting, photography, birdwatching, etc.
If there is a place of interest on or near the canal that you wish to visit we may be able to arrange an excursion. You just have to ask. Skippered cruising gives you a great opportunity to have a tailor made stress free break. There will be opportunities to have a "non cruise" day should you choose to spend more than one night at a particular location. We work only with licenced crews who will assist with all the tasks of navigating, operating the locks and mooring the boat.
