Information on our 2022 Boat Trips
Scroll to the bottom of this page for a list of our upcoming boat trips.
We will generally be operating our open-sided craft “Edith-Elizabeth” from Goytre Wharf. However, we will also operate this boat from other locations for special events on the canal. We will publicise in advance below which days we will be running. We normally run the boat Friday through to Sunday every week but this is dependent on suitable weather, and sufficient volunteers being available to run the boat.
Please check back on this page below that the boat is running on your chosen day before you travel to Goytre Wharf. You can find how to get to Goytre Wharf on our Goytre Wharf visitor information page.
The Edith-Elizabeth will normally run from 10:30am to 4:00pm on the days that it is running. The last trip will start at 3:30pm. You don’t need to book in advance. However, when you arrive please contact our on-shore crew who will advise which time slots are available. You will need to pay when you arrive for your trip, and we will issue you tickets for your reserved slot. On busy days all of the time slots are often reserved by lunch-time and unfortunately we may not be able to accommodate you. There is lots to do at Goytre Wharf whilst you wait for your trip.
“Edith-Elizabeth” is split into 2 sections. It has a maximum capacity of 10 people.
The cost is £4 per adult, £3 per child, under 2 yrs free for a 30 minute trip. Please pay before you board.
We welcome well-behaved dogs onto our boats.
If you have a pram or pushchair you can leave it with our on-shore crew.
If you have reduced mobility then you may find getting on and off our boat difficult as the boat does wobble side to side. Our crew will assist you if you wish.
We also have a larger enclosed boat, the Lord Raglan, that can accommodate up to 20 passengers. Please contact us to discuss your requirements and we will be able to discuss with you what we are able to provide on this boat for bespoke trips.
Our Boats are licenced to run passenger services and are operated by trained and qualified volunteers. For your added safety, our boats are equipped with life-buoys.
