Before you know it you’ll be tootling along seventeen miles of quiet lock-free water like a true captain of the Leeds & Liverpool canal. Your canal trip is a restful way to explore Skipton’s lush green dales at your own effortless pace, where nature’s so close that you can reach out and touch it.
We launch your small group with all the skills you need to keep your family and friends safe and happy on your day-long Skipton canal trip. Your boat comes with all the home comforts you expect too, like a cooker to serve up picnics, comfy seats to admire the scenery from and a proper flushing toilet.
