Seth Ellis Tripboat
The Seth Ellis is run by the Chesterfield Canal Trust and is crewed by fully qualified volunteers. She is licensed to carry up to 12 passengers. Purpose built in 2005, she has a galley for serving hot and cold drinks, a toilet and central heating as well as large opening windows all around. A large cruiser-style stern makes getting on and off the boat easy. Access to the passenger cabin is down a short flight of steps.
You are welcome to bring your own picnic, or we can stop at a canalside pub. Passengers may have a go at steering, under the supervision of our crew.
From our base in Retford, you can charter the boat on a choice of routes. We move to other locations for some weekend trips.
Santa Special trips every weekend from late November to Christmas (£6 for all). Booking essential, bookings open in September.
