Boats can be specially adapted for use by those in a wheelchair or with mobility impairment. There are a number of organisations across the waterway network offering this service.
We want everyone to enjoy our canals and rivers and the unique experiences they have to offer.
For people in wheelchairs, or those who find moving around difficult, a specially adapted boat may open up new opportunities.
If you run a boating business and would like to advertise your services to a wider audience, please look at creating a listing within our directory.
We run a trip boat which is accessible for manual wheelchairs from the National Waterways Museum in Gloucester
We also have an accessible trip boat at the Anderton Boat Lift
We have also been informed that the following organisations offer accessible boat trips, but please contact them for confirmation and up-to-date information. Please also be aware that this list is not exhaustive:
The following have boats available for self-skippered hire for holidays from a weekend break to as many weeks as desired. Again, please contact the organisation directly for up-to-date details and confirmation. This list is not exhaustive.
Please note that we offer this information in good faith but cannot take responsibility for content on third party sites.
