Wandering Duck is the unique canal boat experience. They offer day tours for small groups of up to 8 people. Their day tours are hands-on; have a go at steering their 69ft Narrowboat, or help work the locks.

Unfortunately dogs are not allowed. I am asthmatic and our boat is carpeted so it's not practical from that point of view. I am a dog lover myself and there are many dogs on live-aboard canal boats, but in our case it just doesn't work. I hope you can still come on a trip with us.
