Karen's Day Boat Hire

Why​ not hire your own boat for the day and enjoy the countryside whilst sailing along the beautiful & historic Bridgewater Canal.  Built in 1795 by Francis Egerton, the 3rd Duke of Bridgwater to carry coal from his mines in Worlsey to Manchester. The ‘Dukes Cut’ is the first canal in Britain to be built without following an existing waterway, marking the beginning of the golden canal era. The Bridgewater Canal has a distinctive orange tinge due to the natural iron from the mines.  

The children will love it too as there is so much to see; swans, ducks and herons, to carp basking in the waters.  If you are lucky you might spot a mink, kingfisher or the elusive canal turtle hiding in the shade.  

Perfect for special occasions, family days out, corporate days and fun with friends.  We’ve had birthday parties, anniversaries, reunions, stag & hen do’s, proposals and even a wedding.
