We love and care for your canals and rivers, because everyone deserves a place to escape.

Airedale Cruising

Airedale Cruising

We provide Skippered Canal Day Cruises on traditional narrowboat Lizzie-Jean normally starting from Skipton Canal Basin for groups of up to eight. Travelling gently through lovely Yorkshire Dales scenery you can choose to cruise to either Gargrave or Farnhill and enjoy lunch in a local pub, or bring your own food for an on-board buffet or a canalside picnic.

If you wish, you can learn how to steer the boat and help with swing-bridges and locks too - or just put your feet up and enjoy the trip! Cosy centrally-heated cabin available for colder days - and children are welcome.  

Full-day Tuition Cruises also available - full details on our website.
