Dreamt about a holiday on a boat, or fancy a day trip to remember? Hire a boat from us for a day and learn the ropes of canal life.

If you’ve been thinking about having a canal holiday, this one day hire is a great way to get a taster of canal cruising. If you’re an old hand on a narrowboat, you’ll love spending a day exploring this beautiful part of the Rochdale Canal.

From Hebden Bridge you can cruise along the Rochdale canal to Sowerby Bridge and enjoy a picnic in the woods or look around the town including the historic Sowerby Bridge wharf.

Alternatively, boat towards Todmorden, pay a visit to the canal side pub, Stubbing Wharf, before moving on to enjoy beautiful countryside and wildlife before reaching Todmorden’s markets, cafes and pubs.

Our hire boat, Jimmy is fully equipped with cooking and toilet facilities.

Planning a Booze Cruise?

No thanks! Sorry but due to safety of our boats, your passengers and other canal users we can not allow you to drink volumes of alcohol whilst learning how to steer a narrow boat! We welcome careful hirer’s but if we believe you to be organizing a drinking party we will refuse you hire of the boat on the day and retain your deposit.
