Boat Hire

Hiring our self-drive boat or a boat with crew is a great way to experience the canal. You can go where you want and bring your own food and drink on board. Our volunteers will be glad to share their experience of the canal to ensure you have a great time.

Boat hire options are:

  • Self-drive boat Leamington that can carry 12 passengers, including driver
  • Victoria, an open boat with driver provided that can carry 12 passengers
  • A 40 seater boat – which may be either St Magdalene or St Michael –  closed boats with driver and crew provided that can carry 40 passengers

Follow the links above to find out more about the options available and to book your hire boat.

Advance Booking is Essential, availability as shown in the booking system
