Really helpful and friendly, Mark came on board for a short while to make sure we knew what to do as we were first timers. Lovely boat and an enjoyable afternoon with great scenery. Highly recommended.

I had seen narrow boats on the English canals, on a travel show in Australia probably 15 years ago, and wanted to do it ever since. So when my cousin said she'd booked a boat for the day I was very excited :D After arriving...More

I am a regular canal boater, and have found the day hire at Copt Heath Wharf one of the better ones. For being friendly, and having well equipped boats. The boats come complete with tea/coffee, milk & sugar.
