Fantastic ExperienceWe had a fantastic week on board Bramble. Karen and Arthur were so welcoming and accommodating even though we were late and had missed our allotted slot. Instruction via the videos beforehand and in-person from Arthur made the driving and use of the boat so easy. Karen even went to the trouble of posting back some shoes we had left on board. A wonderful restful week on the canal!Date: 2022-08-29
Fabulous family day outWe hired a five hour narrowboat trip with two adults four children and a puppy. Arthur and his team were fantastic we will definitely be coming back for another visit will recommend to everyone. Great value for money driving the boat was easier than we thought fantastic day out children and puppy had a great time.Date: 2022-08-27
Great few daysWe booked a four night break starting Monday on Teasel in June. The whole process was really simple and both Karen and Arthur couldn’t have been more helpful or nice. The boat was great, super clean and really simple to operate. Overall it was a really relaxing break and we will definitely be booking another trip soon. Highly recommended.Date: 2022-07-15
Practically Perfect in every way…The Basingstoke Canal is such a beautiful part of Hampshire and Surrey, passed closely by many thousands of people in cars and trains every day, but experienced only by the fortunate few.
Our boat Bramble from Galleon Marine was a delight, well appointed and with many thoughtful touches.A warm welcome and thorough handover.
We got all four seasons over the weekend we booked as it was the second last weekend in October, but each I think added to our appreciation of the wonderful environment, wildlife and changes of landscape we all experienced onboard.Date: 2022-10-24
Yet another memorable…Yet another memorable canal holiday with Galleon Marine.Our 2nd booking with Karen and Arthur, this time on Teasel. As before, everything was well organised and we were soon on our way seeing the wonderful scenery and wildlife including our first Kingfishers!! Our one and only problem was with the fridge but that was resolved in no time at all, with no inconvenience to us. We cannot wait until we can do it again.Date: 2022-04-17
Great service and brilliant day out.
Excellent, friendly, personal family feel service. Were really helpful in enabling us to sort out quite a complex multi canoe hire. Everything ready ahead of our arrival time and these guys are a thoroughly great bunch of people to deal with. We had a fantastic day on the canal, and everyone in the group really enjoyed themselves.
Would not hesitate to recommend or return.
2nd hire of narrowboat ‘Bramble’
Our second narrowboat hire with Galleon Marine onboard their 8 berth narrowboat ‘Bramble.’
So, what’s not to like…
If the beautiful Basingstoke Canal provided the course for our journey during the week we spent on Bramble, the boat kept us safe, warm (heating in the early mornings & hot showers) and very, very comfortable.
Friendly welcome (again) and handover to quickly reacquaint us with Bramble. An immaculately clean boat, and very well appointed throughout.
The Basingstoke Canal is BEAUTIFUL….
We’ll be back again, soon…
Thx, Galleon Marine Team !!!
Teasel July Holiday
Beautifully Kept Boat and nicely decorated. We loved the eggshell blue and cream living area, kitted out with everything we would need. The best boat holiday we have been on.Date: 2023-07-25
