Our one hour canal trip promises you a guided tour that's fun, informative and relaxing, whatever the weather. Your guide for the canal tour is award-winning comedian Dave Spikey of Phoenix Nights and 8 Out of 10 Cats fame. With his characteristic Northern patter, Dave takes you on a whistle-stop tour of Skipton and canal history that's refreshingly different to your average commentary. For a longer boat experience, we offer a variety of private charters. Enjoy a ploughman’s lunch or afternoon tea perhaps, or join us on one of our fish and chip cruises or brewery tours, as you sail sedately through the Yorkshire countryside. With over 30 years of boat trips we’ve helped lots of satisfied people enjoy a cruise, a meal, celebrate a special occasion, or simply show them the ropes before they set off on their own adventure. So place your Skipton canal trip in our capable hands. We take extra care before, during and after your booking to make your experience more enjoyable.
