An absolutely wonderful experience. Our boat crew were friendly, helpful, and above all safety conscious. We had been on a trip previously in 2019, however that particular outing only involved a short trip, where as this one took in much more of the canal. Food was of a high standard and considered quite tasty by my girlfriends children, who all consumed their spread with great gusto. I heartily recommend this trip to anyone wanting a special romantic 2 hours on the canal, but also for a large family. Our party consisted of 5 and I would defiantly suggest they would be able to accommodate parties of 8 people. Great fun, and a marvellous experience for all!

Really friendly staff, COVID-19 safe, sat on own table with perspex screens in-between. We started off with a delicious glass of Prosecco and then we had a tray full of little sandwiches, scone and cakes. We actually could not eat all the cakes. Had a lovely journey on a rainy day traveling down the canal. One thing I would advise is to leave enough room to find a parking space in Skipton as it is very busy.

A very enjoyable experience. Was a really cold day so we were apprehensive about the boat trip,but it was very warm and cosy. A very pleasant surprise. Really didn't expect it to be heated! Staff were all very friendly, helpful and courteous and the afternoon tea was delicious! Would definately recommended it. Well done to everyone concerned.
