Tips to make your Trip More Enjoyable

  • Bring a cushion - though you can stand up, get off the boat and move around its always nice to have a comfortable seat.
  • Though you can purchase refreshments on board you can also pack a picnic to enjoy on the boat or in the nature reserve. Alternatively why not book a picnic from our Gongoozler Restaurant - it can be waiting for you at the start of your trip.
  • Bring a camera - this trips takes you through an amazing landscape rich with heritage, engineering feats in canal building and amazing wildlife.
