Family Boating Holiday Adventures

If you are looking for a memorable holiday where you can spend quality time with your loved ones, a boating holiday is a great choice! 

Get Everyone Involved

From learning to drive a boat, working together to operate the locks, and planning your daily route, there is something for everyone to get involved in, even the smallest members. And with so many family friendly attractions within easy reach of the south Grand Union canal too, there'll always be plenty to keep the whole crew entertained.

Make it Your Own

When you hire a canal boat for a self-drive holiday, you can explore at your own pace. So whether you want to spend every day boating to see how far you can get, or whether you want a more leisurely cruise with plenty of time to get off the boat and explore the beautiful Chiltern Hills, a boating holiday can be whatever you want it to be.

A Home from Home

Our boats come fully equipped with everything you need - think of it as a floating holiday cottage! So you can stock up the cupboards and whip up a family feast in the kitchen, spend the evenings around the dining table playing one of the board board games or watching your favourite film, and then curl up in a cosy bed at night for a peaceful rest below the star. Because let's face it, it's these moments when the best family memories are really made!

Safety First...

Even if you've never been on a canal boat before, with our tailored introduction to narowboating at the start of your holiday, we'll show you everything you need to know, including teaching the kids how to be safe around the locks and water. Plus, we provide all life jackets and safety equipment as part of your holiday price so you can rest assured that the whole family can enjoy a safe holiday on the canal.

So why not do something different this year and book a canal boating holiday on the south Grand Union Canal? It's a unique type of holiday that will be remembered forever.

Make memories, not dreams!
