Cruising our network of inland waterways makes for a great holiday or way of life. Inland boats range from small cruisers to narrowboats and barges.
Knowing how to handle the boat properly and navigate locks will give you the confidence you need to relax and make the most of your time on the water.
Our one and two day courses are suitable for beginners and more experienced boaters, making sure you have the knowledge and skills to explore the waterways safely and at your own pace.
