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

Wandering Duck

Wandering Duck is a unique canal boat experience.

They offer two and three night canal boat tours around Manchester, Derbyshire and Cheshire.

Have a go at steering, work the locks, enjoy walks, local pubs, or even take a paddle in their canoe.

Come on your own and join like-minded adventurous, or charter the boat for your own small group.

They take up to eight guests (up to 10 on a charter) and their boat is equipped with ipod dock, guitar, games, books, two bathrooms, and eight bunk beds. They even have an honesty bar with a real ale hand-pump (pull your own pint!)

Tours are fully hosted, and include most meals.

Disability Access Information

Wandering Duck tours are generally not suitable for people with severe physical disabilities. We have three steep steps down into our boat, and narrow doorways into our bathrooms. If you are unsure as to the suitability of our tours, please give us a call and we can discuss your individual needs. The NCBA (National Community Boat Association) lists a number of boating trips and services, and many of the organisations listed provide services specifically for disabled guests.
