Day Narrowboat Hire 2022

The best way to book, once you have chosen an available date below, is to call our office on 01256 703691. You can also complete our Enquiry Form and we will get back to you to confirm.

Juniper is available for 5 and 7 hour hire (7 hour hires are only available from April until the end of September due to limited daylight hours). Please note that we have to carry out a 'Handover' on this boat which takes about 20 minutes, this ensures you are fully aware of all the boat features, their operation and safety equipment. We also advise on boat handling if you haven't driven a narrowboat before. So whatever time you book the boat from you will need at least 2 adults to go through the handover 30 minutes before departing. Please be aware that a minimum of two able bodied adults are required to crew the boat.
