Frequently Asked Questions - Canal Boat Holidays

If you have a question that we have not covered below, please feel free to contact us.

Do I need a license to operate a canal boat?

No, you will not need a license and you will be given all the training you need to get started.

Do you have day boat hire?

No. Our canal boats have sleeping facilities and are not suitable for day hire. Our minimum rental period is 3 nights, but you can bring the canal boat back earlier if you wish.

Is the canal boat difficult to operate?

No. The waters are mostly current free and cruising speed is only three to four miles per hour making operating a canal boat child's play.

Where can we stop?

You can moor up wherever you like. Simply find a nice spot and tie up. If you prefer, you can stop in a marina. Llangollen marina for example charge £5 per night with electric hookup and water points.

Is there car parking at the canal boat holiday marina?

Free car parking is available at many of our narrow boat locations. A lot of marinas are also close to main line railway stations.

Does the canal boat have electricity?

Yes, the canalboat has 240v (UK Mains) sockets which accept 3 pin plugs. Electricity is produced from the engine by storing it in batteries. An inverter then converts the 12v to 240v electricity.
