What our customers have to say... 

Really enjoyed the one hour boat trip up the canal on Sunday

Had a really nice trip, the staff were very friendly and helpful 
Great, enjoyed the trip! 
Even in the rain, the people who run this made it very interesting for the children, pointing out the uniqueness of different bridges and landmarks along the way. We had a lovely afternoon and will definitely be going back. Two children aged 8 and 9 - their comment on return was "AWESOME, WHEN CAN WE GO AGAIN?" Made it worth every penny
