About Canal Experience
Canal Experience is dedicated to ensuring that everyone can enjoy time spent on the Inland Waterways enjoyably and safely.
We believe that competence and confidence are the keys to enjoying your time on the water. Our courses distil years of experience, gained and passed on by many boatmen, into a practical and enjoyable event.
All our instructors have considerable experience both as boaters and as trainers. They are also all qualified in First Aid and have your safety as their to priority.
We offer the core RYA Helmsman’s Course, CEVNI Tests & Boat Familiarisation courses which will help you to get started or to improve on your boating skills.
We also offer fun courses, such as:
Nature Days (see the wildlife as you travel the canal)
The Bat Experience (meet Tony, our bat spotter, for a fascinating evening on the canalside). Or make it an overnight stay and join us for a cruise to & from the bat site. These courses will start in the autumn.
Jam & Sloe Gin (Pick blackberries, damsons & sloes, then enjoy a demonstration of how to make jam & sloe gin). These courses will run in late September & throughout October.
The Coalboat Experience (meet the coalmen who deliver supplies to the Grand Union people. An opportunity to steer a working boat or maybe even a rare working pair) NOTE: Some experience is necessary before booking this course, an RYA Helmsman’s Certificate or equivalent is required.
